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.
