Trying to stay patient

In the past few days since making the decision to completely take off from running for a few days, I've realized that the hardest part of running is not running. Over the past few years, I've taken some breaks and had some downtime, but this is the first time I told myself I simply wouldn't run. My foot is feeling better and I'm driving myself crazy by not running, but I want to be ready for the next big race. I don't want to remember 2008 as being the year I was stupid and stayed hurt! So, here's to waiting another couple of days before I pound on the pavement again, and here's to hoping Christmas boxes will be out of my way soon so I can lift weights and burn off the Christmas calories ...
