As race day grew closer I was feeling confident in my effort to run 12-hours and 55-60 miles while raising almost $3,000 for the Nevada SPCA. A week before the race, while on a training run, I fell and broke a bone in my hand/wrist. I was upset but figured heck its my hand I can at least still run. That was until I went to see the orthopedic doctor and he said I broke the worst possible bone in my body and the hardest bone to heal properly because of low blood flow to that area. He was very adamant that I should not run the 12-hour run this weekend or run at all for about month to prevent further damage to the bone. If I don’t listen to him I run the risk of needing surgery, which is a very difficult surgery to do and recover from. Needless to say I am not running this weekend or at all for at least a month.
Run For Fido is not dead since I have a 56-mile run I was planning to do in June. I will continue my fundraising efforts through June and that race. The good news is that I have more time to meet my financial goal of $3,000. You can still follow my adventure on my Run For Fido Facebook page and lets face it this has really turned into quite an adventure!
Thank you for those who have donated and supported me, I will be running in no time at all. The dogs, NSPCA, and I appreciate your support. If you know me well you know my determination is relentless!
