      2001. Run the Rock 5K. I left right after and realized later I had a podium in my first ever race, but missed it altogether. Raced here and there for the next few years and got into Marathons in 2008. Full on addiction ensued.

      NOOOOOO! I can only imagine how you feel. On a positive note. Missing one day will not ruin a whole year of training. But you already know that. Saturday will be fine.

      Of course you kept running after a stick went through your leg! You are crazy! Hopefully everything heals up well. Luckily this was you final push for mileage and you are in taper mode now.
