Sorry to hear that; hope you feel better soon. Injuries/illnesses that make running untenable absolutely suck, particularly when you are feeling ready to go.Always appreciated but sadly I will not be running this year. I just got home from eight days at MGH for what I'll call complications from pneumonia. I was already at goal pre-marathon weight (5'8" and around 134) and I lost at least seven pounds off that if not more. I've been doing nothing but eating since I got home and I can't crack 130. The half-mile walk to the grocery store is tiring, and when you add in the weather, I'll be watching on WBZ. The (current) streak dies at four.
