Surgery is now six days away and today was the day scheduled to get all of the pre-op stuff done. Spent time with my surgeon as well as the admitting process at St. Joseph’s. My surgeon gave me a rundown on all of the things that would be taking place on the day of surgery as well as the following couple of weeks.
A week ago I ran in the 2010 edition of the Seattle Marathon, after running the half marathon the previous 3 years. I had tried a full marathon once last year, but it had had a less than satisfactory ending, having to walk most of the last 7 miles. This time I was determined to run the whole course, regardless of how long it took me to finish.
