Tour De Cure 2009

This Morning was the annual Tour de Cure in Northwest Arkansas. The Tour De Cure supports the American Diabetes Association. Chad has been training for the half marathon for the past 6 months and sad news came this week. Chad was told he could not run. Why you ask... well Chad pulled his Achilles Muscle. It all started last Monday when he was running it started to hurt, however he continued to run again on Wednesday and than on Thursday morning with a lot of pain. He went to his trainer on Thursday afternoon and it was determined that he was not to run at all! He was at risk of further damage and A LOT of time off of working out and running. He is treating it with ice treatments as much as he can throughout the day. We pray that it heals quickly. However we still went to the event to cheer on our friend Chad Linam. It was his first marathon in a long time. He did AMESOME and we are so glad that we could both be apart of his day. We took some great photos of him running as well as the supporting cheerleaders. I hope that everyone had a great Saturday.

Tell your hubby to take good care of his injury! My dad was told weeks before the Boston Marathon that he couldn't run because of injuries to both achilles! He had been hurting but kept running even though they told him not to and then he had to miss the marathon. Also he has just had both achilles repaired....the crazy guy is wanting to run marathons again! :) I hope your hubby's injury isn't as severe and he gets better!!
