running fomo: a runfession/coffee date mashup

My running FOMO is real and here to stay and I am so happy to have both the Runfessions and Ultimate Coffee Date linkups to bare my “sole.”

Are you ready?

Let’s chat.

Over coffee, I would runfess….

That after the last few days, running feels closer. Not close, mind you, but closer. My nerve pain is better controlled and my energy level is higher. I don’t want to jinx anything, but I do feel … better. There will still be ups and downs, I’m sure, and next Runfessions day, I may be an emotional wreck again, but for right now, I’m going with it. After all, that running FOMO is real and I can’t wait to make it come true.

That a friend loaned me a knee scooter, and I wasn’t too sure about using it. Technically, I am mobile and walking. However, I tried it out last night and it’s such a nice thing to have “just in case.” Even though I’m improving, there’s no getting around the fact that I am not at full-strength. And much as it hurts my pride, I have to be ok with using assistance when I need it.

That I am SO FREAKING SAD to be missing Best Damn Race Safety Harbor this weekend. First of all, everyone raves about this race and I was so excited for my first time. We had plans to stay in a fabulous house and take on all our different race goals this weekend. My running FOMO is at embarrassingly high levels as I am going to miss all the fun with so many members of my BDR Ambassador Crew.

That this injury is messing with my head and making me think I want to run a second marathon. My running FOMO was ignited as so many running friends and acquaintance took on the Dopey Challenge and WDW Marathon a few weeks ago, and it got me thinking that I should try 26.2 again. Just to say I did. Spite marathons are probably the worst idea, but that’s what happens when a runner is left unsupervised during a long recovery.

That I miss how things used to be. I miss my independence and my friends and the things I used to do. I know it isn’t forever, but sometimes, it gets lonely, and my running FOMO and regular FOMO combine into an epic FOMO storm. Bleh.

Today we are linking up with ….
