July Racing Update



A few days prior to Pan American Games, I felt a soreness in my left foot. It was something I had never felt before, but it did not alter my run form or cause too much pain not to compete. Afterwards I had my foot checked out by the USOC Medical team and after an MRI it was determined that I am suffering from a fourth metatarsal stress reaction. It is recommended that I do not continue running on it, or else I risk having a complete break of the bone. I am able to continue swimming and cycling, but I have to lay off the running for the time being.

I am gutted to have another bump in the road and not able to race this weekend, but I am determined to continue to get back on track. I have an amazing team of support staff who are helping me to not suffer any more “bumps” this season. The past year, I have encountered issues with my bone density (as I have never had a bone injury in my previous twenty years of running). Every month my bone density is continuing to improve (after pregnancy and 13 months of nursing where I suffered some mineral depletion). I look forward to get back to racing soon and will keep you posted.
Thank you everyone for the continued support this year. Happy training an
