The Well's Run Dry

I am just plumb out of things to write about. I am tired. My back hurts. My back hurts really really bad. It hasn't stopped hurting since my marathon. I thought it would.

Tomorrow I am meeting my running group for our last run of "the summer" and a small social bagel and coffee. I will attempt 3 miles, but know I may not be able to do it, since I really can't fully straighten my back.

After that, I am meeting a dear friend from work for coffee and to go see a movie. That should be fun. Then I can come home and take a nap.

I hope to get my brain and body restored this weekend.

It was not only a depleting experience doing that marathon, but I have had an absolutely draining week at work, including fulfilling some special information requests from the media - as if I didn't have enough to do.

Confession and mass tomorrow - and then my homegroup on Sunday.

It is all good.

The Grace of God -
I can't.
He can.
I think I'll let him.

Reading about how you made it through your week has helped me make it through mine. You will never know how much that means to me. Rest easy and feel better soon.

You write plenty. Your story of recovery (one day at a time) inspires many.

I must say that I'm thinking about the wisdom of running 3 miles today when your back is in bad shape. What's the benefit of doing that?

Enjoy the movie.

I am with Dave. If you hurt that bad what about resting your back? When it feels good then run. Or maybe run today to the chiropractor. Take care.

I'm with dAAve and Syd. You may harm yourself more than help by running today.

Please do take good care.

There's an enormous amount of pressure, is what it sounds like, and, for the sake of offering advice, please consider giving to yourself beyond--i.e. no pressure to produce. Even if it means that you'll disappoint others.
