So, what do you do when you're sidelined with a knee injury and not allowed to run for at least a couple of days, AND you're 4 1/2 weeks out from a marathon?
1. Walk around in your running clothes even though you know that there's no way that you're actually going to head out for the scheduled 6 miler. Blah. Injuries suck.
2. Watch running clips on YouTube. Watch lots and lots of running clips on YouTube. Yeah, that's me, Miss Masochist.
Good thing about watching those clips: if I rest my knee now I will hopefully be able to at least participate in the New York Marathon. And that would mean running the same race as this guy, Haile Gebrselassie. The first guy to break 2.04 in a marathon. I would be honored to participate in the same race as this running hero. :) Does any one know whether or not he's handing out autographs? :)
Who's your running hero?
