An old hip injury flared up, and I was left with a choice. Either I push through and complete the marathon, or figure out an alternate plan. What would this mean for Chicago training? However, I didn’t make any decisions right away. I had many physio appointments, lots of easy running and cutting speed workouts short. I listened to my body, wore my OOFOs any chance I could, and before I knew it, it was time to travel to Seattle. Sooner or later I’d have to make a decision, even if that was at the last minute on race morning.
