Dear Runner Lovers,
It is a snowy, blustery winter!! Instead of running last weekend, I brought my dad to see the Star Wars movie, 3D and IMAX. He was so excited! Afterwards I asked, "What did you think???", he looked so serious and said. " Those features were amazing, outstanding, just incredible." It was a wonderful father/daughter day. Yesterday, my flight was delayed five hours, so happy it wasn't canceled. During the flight and everything, I read the Stephen King novel Mr. Mercedes. Love it! That man is a genius, and anyone seeking a suspenseful, murder mystery thrilling thriller needs it in their life. Anyway, so I had my knee x-rayed after my fall and now it's officially NOT broken. Just bruised black/blue, swollen, and torn up. YUCK... but it's a lot prettier now. I'm just looking up to my spring races. Everything will fall into place, is what I keep telling myself! Last year, after my Florida vacation, I broke the metatarsals in my left foot running barefoot twenty miles everyday along the ocean. It's amazing I was never stung by a jellyfish. I just kept running for a month before finally seeing a doctor, because I thought the pain was just tendonitis. Seeing the cracks in the x-ray was a huge shock. So my advice is not to run on black ice or barefoot along or in the ocean (even if you cannot resist, try harder). Going on a date with one high heel and one knee-high boot cast, is not a good time, hahah (athlete probs)! I was so frustrated about not racing, because it's such a small part of my body that was broken...It happens to the best of us. The key is to stay in your own lane, with those personal goals. I hope that everyone is staying warm and having a fabulous week!
That Pretty Runner
