Jinxed

I think I’m jinxed. Every time my friend Christy comes in to town to run and I plan on running with her, I either get sick or injured or something. 😦

It all started last year when I entered a competition on Facebook to run the Moab Canyonlands 1/2 Marathon. Christy put in for the lottery and got in, so I entered a competition that Salt Lake Running Co was doing to give away an entry so I could run it with her. I won the competition and got free entry in to the race…and got shin splints. Boo.

Then last August, Christy came in to town and we did do the Legacy Midnight 1/2 Marathon together and the Tour De Donut the next day together, but so far, that’s the only race we’ve done together.

So, this year, Christy came in to town to visit her brother and she and I signed up for a 10k, and of course a few days before the 10k, I came down with a terrible chest cold. So, all I could do was go up and root her on.

Last but not least, the Salt Lake City Marathon and 1/2 Marathon was this weekend. Christy came down and did the 1/2 marathon. I was going to run it with her, but, oh wait, Friday night/Saturday morning, I woke up puking my guts up!

Seriously! What is up with this? I just want to be able to run a couple of races with one of my few friends that runs and likes to run. Is that too much to ask?
