As much as I have enjoyed running lately, being injury free and looking forward to October 16th, alas the Detroit Marathon will not become a reality for me.
After several attempts at an enhanced license, miscommunication between the Secretary of State hotline and local branches, countless hours lost waiting in the SOS in between classes, I am done. I am fed up, I am not dealing with it anymore and I am counting my losses.
Yes a few tears were shed, as I really would like revenge on this specific course, we all know the knee story.
With that being said, I will be running the 5k there. I am looking for a PR for many reasons! I will be so pissed that I am not running the marathon, I will be motivated to run faster. My PR for the 5k happened this summer yet a HUGE side cramp happened as well during this race. I want to see what happens if I do not cramp and if I can keep up my intended pace.
The good news is I will be signing up for the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. My dad has agreed to accompany me this November 5th for the race.
I am super excited to get to spend the weekend with my dad and run a course I have never seen before. OH and I will be faster by November =)
To everyone else running Detroit, I will be there to cheer you on!
Oh and f%^& you Detroit Marathon, I didn't want to run anyway!
