Injury Update

Neil is finally home from the hospital. He has a contusion on the brain, intracranial hemorrhage and a fractured orbital bone. He will be okay but no physical activity or alcohol for a month and no driving, outings, visitors, overstimulation for at least this week/until he feels better. Blogging will be light this week while I try to regroup after traveling to NYC Saturday, rushing back yesterday morning and spending all night/day at the hospital.  I’m exhausted and need a break.

Racing. He will not be doing his 10k next week or the one 2 weeks after that.  Also due to the injury and the timing we both will not be doing the Disney half marathon.  This injury will interfere with his training plan and his energy levels so we have decided not to add the extra mental and physical stress of training for a long distance run.  I am hoping that we will be able to run the 5k Turkey Trot together on Thanksgiving and that we will be able to still run our first half marathon together at Disney within the next year.

It’s crazy how one event can change everything.
