My Marathon Was Cancelled and I Am Not Mad

So I found out that the marathon on May 3 that I had signed up for was cancelled due to the current situation around the world. I am not upset about that decision although it is disappointing that I will not be able to take part in this event. I do see that many people may be frustrated or angered by the decision made. However, I think that it is important to understand that runners LOVE to run. The people hosting also LOVE to run, so it is definitely a tough decision for the ones making this decision. From their perspective we should also try to understand that they are doing this for us and we should try to understand. Even though it may be difficult after you have put in all that time and effort training. It is ok though because that means that you will do even better on the next marathon that comes up. So take a breathe, relax, have some food, do some squats, light stretches and do what you love to do, RUN!

I am currently quarantined which is why I cannot post any runs. I am stretching and strengthening my hip during this moment so I am stronger and ready once the quarantine is over. I have come to realize that my mobility around my lower back and hips are VERY limited. Understanding that is a weakness I will definitely take this opportunity to work on that. Something that I strongly believe in is that everything happens for a reason. This to, is a very good example of that. Although I cannot run this is great chance to rest the legs and take time to strengthen the body.

As always thank you for listening and happy running!
