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 :)

 

Totally slept in this morning

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.

10 Bleps That Prove a Cat is Cutest When Its Tongue is Out

The Blep: An adorable phenomenon that involves the protrusion of a cat’s cute pink tongue, often due to forgetfulness. 
Here we observe the blep in its many beautiful manifestations. [distractify]

I love when my cats stick their tongues out!

It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.

Back to work has been all consuming

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.
