Well, i ended up spraining my ankle on the marathon, and i still haven't figured out how or when! But i was finally given the okay to start training last week - for Australia. It took a lot of consideration, but I will be doing the Gold Coast Half Marathon instead of the full. With my ankle injury, i never would have healed in time to train to cut more then an hour off of my time for the full marathon. Instead i need to cut 30min to complete the half marathon in the 3hr time limit. I am glad i did the Vancouver Marathon, and now the half marathon in Australia, and i can say - i just might do this again. Yes, i said again. Maybe. You see things differently after completing a marathon. I started thinking, hey - i just finished a 42.2km marathon - why can't i do this or that. Anything is possible. I am setting my sights on future marathons in the future.
I still haven't figured out how to put photos up on here - - so if i don't figure it out while i am on the plane in 18 DAYS!!! Then i will just set them all up on my flickr acct - and send you all over there!
Anyways - If i have enough time prior to my flight to Australia on June 29 - i'll write another post - otherwise i'll see you down under! :0)
