Friday the 13th, Dammit!

I woke up this morning with a tight left Achilles tendon.  It's sore, but not a lot of pain; just enough to make me concerned for tomorrow.  I was hoping it just needed to be loosened up, but by 3:00, it was still giving me issues, so I had to ditch the family fun festivities for the comfort of the hotel room, anti-inflammatory meds, and a nice soak in the tub.  I'm hoping it will be better tomorrow morning, but if not, then i'm prepared to either reduce the race to a half marathon (provided they still allow it), or not start, depending on the severity.  It will royally suck to not try, but unfortunately you can't predict something like this.  I gambled with doing a long and tiring vacation before a race, as it's not recommended, I only hope I don't lose thast gamble.  YUK!
