I made another attempt at 14 miles this weekend.  About 1.5 miles into the run, my IT band started to ache.  Though I felt like I could have run further, I decided not to push it.  Fourteen miles was definitely out of the question, so I decided to just turn around and head home.

At this point — 4 weeks from the Houston Marathon — I have concluded that it is unrealistic for me to be able to run the marathon. 

I am sorely disappointed (no pun intended).  My head knows this is best, but my heart still hurts.

I’ve now got my sights set on Angie’s Half Crazy Half-Marathon on March 27th.  I’ll spend the next few weeks cross-training and resting and letting my leg heal before I hit the road again.
