There to cheer me on were my wonderful boyfriend Matt and my amazing girlfriend Caitlin, the friend who tore her ligament. It was definitely special to have them there at the end. Though I couldn’t do Caitlin justice in terms of time (she is a freakishly good runner and usually comes in easily under 1:45), I feel like I did as well as I could and am just crossing my fingers in the hopes that my bad knee heals up soon. I’ve always had problems with it (I blame it on all the soccer and field hockey I used to do), but it took quite a beating around the 15K mark and I’m in full-on limp mode now. Advil, epsom salt baths, and icing on repeat from now on.
Hope you all had a wonderful Sunday too! Just wanted to say thank you to all the people who commented on my last post for your amazingly supportive words and thoughts…things aren’t quite in the clear yet but I’m doing well, and feeling even better after reading your comments. Thanks again 🙂
