24. Identical Twin. I love photograpy, writing, and running, even when they don't love me back. I've probably had more injuries in my running career than you can think of but I never let these trials get me down. I love challenges and proving the non-believers wrong :)
I was going to try and wake up and do SOMETHING but sleeping in my warm, cozy bed totally won out against the unknown. I was able to get on the elliptical yesterday for a half hour and run a very, very slow mile with minimum knee pain, but I really don’t know what’s going to send my knee over the edge right now. It failed so easily on me in Arizona I have no idea what my limits are anymore.
My dr. appt to go over the MRI isn’t until Friday, but I’m going to call today and see if I can get it moved to Wednesday.

So sorry I haven’t been able to get on and update :(.
But the doctors appointment went just as I expected - he didn’t really know much that he could say but he ordered an MRI which I’ll be getting on Saturday. Then I’ll have a follow-up with him next week and will hopefully have some more answers…but most likely will be in the same spot I started, just 40 dollars poorer.
I’ll be traveling to Florida in October for a business trip and I am however going to try and see a doctor from the Mayo Clinic because they did so great with my dad’s knees. I’m not looking for surgery here…I’m just really trying to find an answer to why I am in such horrid pain right now and when, or sadly IF, I can ever return to truly running.
As for now…I’m trying to find a place I can get married in spring 2016. Somewhere in the mountains/on a farm near me, although I could be swayed to look at other places up and down the east coast. It’s easier said than done though. And I’m extremely worried about all the prices I’ve found. I might need to live off ramen for a year and a have money for this shin ding.
