Waiting game...

This kinda stinks... With the buzz of running the marathon starting to wear off, I was hoping to be starting training for 5ks and 5 milers in the next couple weeks for the fall/early winter racing season. Instead, I think I have a stress fracture and I need to start trying to find an orthopedic doctor to give me some recovery recommendations. I'm already anticipating complete frustration with the recovery process... but I'm gonna try and stay optimistic.

First item of business... find an orthopedic doctor who can help. More later.

You'll be fine brother, hang in there! It will heal and you can get back out there...I would start planning my come back if I were you.

Count calories and read up on how many miles you can get in your first few weeks back. It will help pass the time.

You might want to see if you can bike while waiting for the stress fracture to heal, that way you can keep all or most of the aerobic gains you have made lately.

I might be able to do that now Bill.. But, earlier in the week, I couldn't put any pressure on it at all. Thanks for the advice.
