Injury causes mother of three to withdraw

I had kept it a bit of a secret, but I had registered to run in this Sunday’s HBF Run for a Reason. My first ever fun run. I have entered to run the 4.5km race.

I was nervous, but knew that the distance wasn’t a problem. My second daily appearance on the treadmill told me that my distance in 30 mins had improved to over 5km.

As I was disentangling myself from my two year old post bedtime reading and singing last night, I somehow stubbed the top of my toe on the edge of his bed. I limped into the lounge room where my expletives remained unuttered in front of the babysitter, and willed the tears from appearing.

I had organised a movie night for homme, our two girls and myself so I slipped my feet into my boots and hobbled to the car.

On inspection of sore toe this morning, I found early bruising. So I thought I would share. Walking in shoes is tricky, running I am thinking is off the cards for a few days.

My hopes are dashed at running this Sunday.
