Running, beeswax, running, & more running...

Saturday morning we woke up early and went to watch our niece Ally run cross country in town.  Summer had a good time. Ally broke her personal record and ran the 2 miles in 13:54! We then tailgated for the Buckeyes game, but watched it from home.  
Sunday Dawn went north to Cleveland for a birthday party so I rode my motorcycle down to Honeyrun Farm for some raw honey and get some beeswax.
Something I have not mentioned on here, but I have been training to run the Columbus Half Marathon this upcoming weekend.  I have been plagued with running injuries through high school and even college, so I have kept it pretty quiet.  My injuries continue to roll on.  I had shin splints when I started training about 12 weeks ago, but that went away with better shoes and other tricks I have learned.  But now I have a bigger issue.  I saw a physical therapist last week because of pain in my lower back/tailbone area.  It has been bad a few weeks and he thought it was a stress fracture so he had me go get x-rays.  So I did that Friday and nothing was blatant so they wanted to do an MRI to get a better look.  UGH! I passed, but I will be treating it as one once the race is over.  Doc said only 2 more 4 mile runs before the race... I did one of those last night and felt pretty good, but still going to take it easy.  I have kinda threw out my goal time for the race, because just finishing with my pain will be an accomplishment.
The race does look very warm this year.  Temps in the mid 50s in the morning.... In my opinion, that will be perfect!  I know some people want it cool, but I like that mid 50s.
Another cool day with plenty of sun! Temps only warming into the mix 60s today with lots of blue skies and sun for your Monday. A few more clouds Tuesday as we warm to near 70 for the high. A mix of sun & clouds Wednesday with highs in the mid 70s. Some early rain possible Thursday as cooler air returns. Have a good one!
