Michelle Jarc

As we have talked before, you know this is my life as well. I just saw my orthopedic doctor on Thursday and after six weeks of no running, he told me at least 4 weeks, if not more. But you know what, I was fine with that. I have made peace with this injury. Yes, I miss running terribly. However, I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. Being injured has taught me so much. So much about myself, so much about racing, so much about appreciating my body, and has helped redirect my thoughts in a positive way when it comes to training. I will be there in Boston with you. I have no time goals, as I know I cannot train as hard as I did last year. I am going there with the appreciation of just being a part of the race, being a part of the day, and just running in what is one of the best marathon's that there is. I look forward to following you along this journey. We have a lot in common and your positive thoughts have helped:).


Wow!......beautiful. I believe you just taught us all something. Thank you.


Beautiful post Michelle!


Michelle - I'm glad that you've reached this same spot in your struggle. It isn't easy, but letting go makes it a little easier. And being patient makes you a stronger, smarter runner in the long run. I hope we're able to meet up in Boston!

Oh yes, I get it! It makes such a difference if I can just be okay with where I'm at and make the best of it. I'm so glad you're easing back into running and there's still time -- anything could happen in Boston!
