first off I’m slow to begin with… but three years ago I was coming off an injury and only had a long run of 8 miles… I decide to start, run 10 miles and then stop… it was the innaugural DC(turned out to be the only one)… I figured I could stop and just take the Metro when I got tired… my husband knowing me better said “see you at 2pm”…I ran the first 10 then walked & jogged the last 16, had beer, listened to other people’s stories, hung out afterwards, did eventually take the Metro home and had more fun than I had ever had… before or since…

on the other hand it wasn’t a race, it wasn’t even much of an “event”… decided right then and there I was going to be in better shape from then on…I think I did it since it was paid for & I had hoped it would be an annual event and I would have done ‘the first’…

guess what I’m saying is… make of list of why you should and why you shouldn’t run the thing… hey it might be fun, it’s paid for… BUT will you be in so much pain and will it set you back even more? maybe there is another goal besides time… like testing your treatment, maybe not… I would talk it over with the PT person & TPR/massage person as well…
