Out of North Face Race

Well, I spoke with a few doctors and I guess I am going to do the responsible thing and pull myself out of the North Face race this weekend. Running a half marathon on a muddy trail with 22 stitches in my shin probably isn't the wisest thing in the world. I sure don't want an infection. Not the end of the world, but I am kind of pissed off at myself. And I'm really not sure how I am going to get through the next nine days of no activity.

Woe is me.

Whatever, me. Could be far worse.

So - now that I'm looking at being a bit of a couch potato - anyone have any good book recommendations?

A quick search of Amazon, turned up this book:

"Jumping up and down;: A manual of motor activities to develop balance and coordination".

Might be a worthwhile read for you :+)

I think you made the right choice. Please rest the leg. I know it is not what you want to do but in the long run you will be a lot happier in the end. Happy reading and enjoy your weekend with your son. Your best supporter.
