So as the weekend came around I was really looking forward to running my 12k Trail Run. It has been a while since I ran a trail and haven’t raced in a while. Although I was a little nervous about going into the race after being sick and hadn’t run for over a week I came to grips with the fact this would just have to be a run I took in the scenery and didn’t “race”.
Well race morning came and went and I wasn’t at that Start Line!
I just couldn’t pull myself out of bed, I was still so extremely exhausted and weak from that insanely long flu and I knew I wasn’t going to do myself any favors by pushing myself to run. No matter what the issue was I was still extremely upset and frustrated with myself. I have never given up on a race and have to say this will hopefully be my last.
I really wanted to give you guys an incredible race report but that isn’t going to happen today and I will have to just suck it up and get ready for the next one, which will be another trail run!
I’m going back for the Trail Run that started it all back up for me, what got me back into running again and the one that although it was extremely difficult made me fall in love with Running again!

Have you ever signed up for a Race that you didn’t make it to the Starting Line?
What did you do to come to grips with that or did it even phase you?
