All Aboard!!! Pity Party Express is boarding.....

So I have been riding the front seat on the pity party express. I have been down in the dumps for the last two weeks. It's not been a fun ride. I tend to always post my good runs or experiences and hardly my bad ones. So this is a rare post from me.....



Here I am, signed up to do the mother of all marathons, .... but I am hurt.... I am injured. I haven't been able to run past a mile without having my left knee or left calf muscle tighten up in pain. Running has been real hard for me lately. So much so, that I haven't really wanted to talk about it. It's been really an emotional two weeks for me and I'm not embarrassed to say that. Running is my passion. I eat, breath and sleep running. Ask anyone that knows me,.... running means everything to me. So yes,... these past two weeks have been very hard on me. If you are a runner, I'm sure you understand.

Last week I went to see a specialist, a podiatrist and got some x-rays done. According to him, my joints look good. Normal wear, but nothing that's stands out as an issue. That's good news. He scheduled an MRI to get a better look. This was done this past Thursday. I go back to see him on Tuesday for the results.


I haven't run since last Sunday's 11 miler which was really tough to do. It was a painful run.

I might have shed a tear or two during this run. It just sucked.... I could barely walk the next day. That was what pushed me to see the doctors.

I hope Tuesday brings some positive news. I'm praying for some miracle news, but I'm expecting the worst.

I'll keep you guys posted.

I don't know any runner who hasn't been where you are. You've got the most sympathetic audience possible. I hope the news from the scan is good and the podiatrist has a course of action to get you back on track and running pain-free again.

Man that sucks. I hope the news from the MRI is good. I know exactly what you mean - when everything is going well, you think you can run through a wall, but when something happens like this, it really turns everything upside down. Best wishes.

Maybe try some accupuncture. M.D. said quit running or have surgery and acupuncture has me running pain free.
