Marathon Training Day 687: I missed the 2014 Eugene Marathon

Failure sucks.

So, the Wednesday before the Eugene Marathon… I had a stomach issue. It was possibly food poisoning, I’m not sure. What I can tell you is that I lost four pounds in two days… and within a span of five hours I had diarrhea seven times and vomited six times (with an additional two bouts of dry heaving).

I had already been struggling to overcome a foot injury as a result from foster care. But the stomach bug really ended all hopes of running any part of the Eugene Marathon.

I will run again… but this year has been a very frustrating year for running.

I’m having trouble calculating the value of the goodie bag considering I could not run the marathon. So… I did get a nice shirt.2014 Eugene Marathon - Oregon

And a stick of deodorant.Speed Stick Gear 48 Hour Protection

But at $97 for the marathon entry fee … if the shirt is worth $30, does that make the stick of deodorant $67??

** Sigh **
