Mark is recovering both physically and emotionally. It appears to be a hip flexor issue, but he is on the mend. Fortunately, it is nothing too serious. UNfortunately, this has made him question his decision on Sunday. I believe he is forgetting the pain he was feeling at the time. Thanks again for all of your support; Mark has been reading the comments and I know it is helping him feel better about the whole experience.
Edit: I just came upon a post that Kenny wrote yesterday and it rings very true: Braving It. Thanks, Kenny.

Project Lean Mean Running Machine is going great since kicking it off last Monday. For the first time in a long time, I feel focused. I worked out like crazy last week despite not running – yesterday was my 8th straight day at the gym! I’ve taken yoga, spin and interval classes and worked out on my own as well. I’ve also gotten back on track with healthy eating again. This girl didn’t eat a single piece of Halloween candy! And when hubby ordered a scrumptious-looking pizza for Sunday night, I made my own healthy version – a tortilla pizza with veggies and turkey pepperoni. I had to take a picture:
The best news: I’ve lost 4 lbs and I’m only 6 away from my lowest weight last year.
I got a super awesome surprise belated Birthday gift in the mail yesterday from Tall Mom.
Hand & toe warmers, GU Chomps, Roctane GU x2, a Mojo Dipped bar, Luna Bar and Luna Moons (only the wrappers remain…), a Pink String for breast Cancer, a fun “Today I Feel” magnet and a sweet card. I was utterly spoiled! Thanks Mel!
