      Smart move, David. I've made too many bad decisions in the past to run injured and it's not fun. Heal up and use the good training that you've already had.

      Sorry...I know you were really looking forward to this. However, you don't want to run a marathon on pain meds. Hope you find the source soon.

      Hopefully lots of carb loading will follow, too. :) Wonder if a quick trip to a chiropractor might help the shoulder?
