it can all change in an instant

This morning, about 3.5 miles into an 8-mile run, Friday's pulled hamstring became a torn hamstring. I had to stop running immediately. It hurt to walk home. It hurts to stand. It hurts to sit here with ice on it.

I am so disgusted, not just because I've been training for a marathon but also because I just this week registered for the damn thing, and paid for all the travel. Non-refundable, natch.

I have had it. All the work, the early mornings, the not enough sleep, the non social life, the fatigue, the sweat, the soreness, the constant open wounds from chafing - all for nothing, all to get injured time and time again. I'm done.
