It's icy out there. We've been enjoying some warm weather and rediscovering our roads and sidewalks again. But it's still icy out there. That, I discovered, is the best way to get yet another week off running.

My shin is beginning to feel like I could abuse it again, and I slip on the ice. I fall down. I go to the hospital. I get casted for a fracture. Four weeks is not too long, but my first real race ever is in five weeks.

I'm going out to run anyway. I figure the throbbing will go away soon. I'll give it a few more days and get back outside.

Obstacles. Gotta love them, I guess.
