Down But Not Out!

 So here’s a littleimages update on what’s been going on!  Vacation started July 27th as we headed down 95 south towards North Carolina. 2 hours into the drive I felt my legs cramping up so I went to stretch my leg.. Upon doing that I felt pinch and a crack…  I knew this wasn’t good.. At the next rest stop I’d get out and walk it out hopefully easing the pain.. Through out the drive I had a stiffness and soreness on the interior of my left knee.. We get to our first destination, Roanoke Rapids. And I have a hard time walking for a moment until I warmed up my knee. We got in to the hotel and I elevated my leg and took some Alieve.  The next morning, I woke up and I was okay not to much pain. 

 Once in Topsail Beach.  I noticed that I still had stiffness in my knee and a weird pain in the interior of my knee. I ran a few times while down there but there was one night where I woke up in sever pain clenching my knee.. All I could think of, ‘NOT MY MCL! PLEASE NOT THAT!’  I again took some Alieve, elevated my knee and went back to bed.  That evening while cooking dinner I twisted the wrong way and well Down I went, clenching on to the counter in pain. 

  So with that, I haven’t been running in 2 weeks trying to let my knee heal some.  Today, is the first day in 2 weeks where my knee isn’t killing me.  I am still gunna make an appointment with an Ortho but even that makes me nervous. 

 In other news..  I am going back to school for my RMA ( medical assistant ) !!! 35 and I am going back to school… Nervous as all hell but  I got this!! This is my year! 35 is the new 25, RIGHT? right! lmao. I am also getting a second interview with Lululemon on monday! I never thought I’d ever work there but I am stoked..

Day 1 Week 1 Marathon Training!

Before my run today!

Before my run today!

So HOLY CRAP IT”S HERE!!! It’s really here.  This is where my life get’s serious and all the BS is left behind. I’d be lying if I didnt say that I started to cry last night thinking about where I have come from, what I have accomplished thus far, and where I am about to go.  OMG I AM RUNNING NYC WITH #MYRUNNINGFAMILY!!!! Get Stoked..  But first,  I Thank God for my #SoulSister  Amy ( aka: THE AWESOME MOM ) For making me get off and out of my Couch Monster position and hit the streets running..  Cus man, I was not and have not been feeling it lately since I hurt my foot! But I did it. So up first 4 mile run! I ended up doing 3.34 miles instead because my headphones died out pretty much 1/4 of the way through. and I’m sorry I need to listen to my jams when I run. It gets me 110% out of my head.
