I think I knew in the back of my mind several weeks ago, but it was confirmed today and I finally have peace as I have realized there is no way I will be ready for the full marathon in just 12 weeks. I have resigned myself to the fact that with the emotional/spiritual/physical struggles I've had that no matter how stubborn.... err.... determined... I am, running/walking/jogging 26.2 miles is not in my best interests.
I need to work on getting myself emotionally/spiritually/physically healthy and training for a marathon would be much too much to expect of myself right now.
Pressing on, with a little less pride,
