CountDown to Moab...or not?

Not sure what happened or what to do about it. Once again, my hip is giving me trouble - it's the psoas muscle. I've been stretching it out in so many ways, getting it massaged, ice/heat, and now lathered up with stinky TigerBalm and IcyHot on my hip - yowza that's some powerful stuff on it's own - but in combination it's lethal...and now, so am I ;) I am scheduled to see the physical therapist tomorrow but it's really not much time to get this under control and I'm not hopeful of getting it resolved before the race this Saturday.

So, if my hip isn't feeling better by tomorrow, I'm pulling the plug on the race. I'm hurting, extremely irritated, completely stressed and now I'm downright angry that just a couple weeks before the race, this happens. I'm already feeling extremely physically unprepared for the race, but now to have the psoas muscle bothering me so close to race day is stressing the hell out of me. I'm just not spending hundreds of dollars and two full days of driving on a race that I *might* be able to run. It's just not worth it.
