Tomorrow I’ll be heading off to a race called Getting Tough The Race with my team from Munich Elite Warriors. It is a really tough Obstacle Course Race in Germany, and I was looking forward to it since I signed up last December. But I can’t race due to injury. I found out two weeks ago that I broke a rib before NYC Marathon and World’s Toughest Mudder, and I am still suffering from a shoulder overuse injury. While I could probably still run the race because my legs are fine, it would not be a smart move as I risk aggravating my injuries.
Missing a race due to injury is sad, but not the end of the world. Here are 3 reasons how you can still make the best out of your race despite having an injury.
