Marathon Training - Aborted

Unfortunately, with my hips being in the condition that they are in right now, and the lack of miles I have put in recently because of them, I have decided to forego the Philadelphia Marathon.   This is incredibly disappointing and heartbreaking for me, as it has been all that I could think about for the last 5 months.  I am confident that it is the right decision, as I am still in pain a week after a measly 3 mile run.  All I can do at this point is rest and try to get better so I can begin training for another.  I know that if I would have tried to go out and do it, I would be laid up for much longer.
