Achilles tendinitis - Missing the St. Patrick's Day Run

Alex is nursing Achilles tendinitis in his right Achilles and so will miss the St. Patrick's Day Run for Easter Seals on Saturday.

This is only the 5th run he'll have missed since he started running in the PEI RoadRunner races in May 2004.

No... he's not happy about it...

As well, I'm leaving town today for 2 weeks so we won't even be in attendance as fans or volunteers.

If all goes well, he'll be back in running shape when I get home in time for the new Charlottetown Bluephin 5K on March 28th at UPEI and ready to take on the WR3 Half-Marathon April 4th. (If he's not in half-marathon shape the WR3 offers a 10K and 5K as well). Online registration is now open for the WR3 races.

So get your green on people and head out to UPEI on Saturday....

Ouch... Sorry to hear about that. It's gotta be a huge drag to not be able to participate in an event you're used to participating in and looking forward to and stuff. :( Hope you get better soon, Alex!
