This past Saturday, Jase and I decieded to run in the South Weber Days 10 k race. I was so excited for us both! We invited my brother Trevor, his friend Taelor, Jases mom Janae and my good friend Sam! We were all So excited and PUMPED! About a quarter mile into the race my knee felt like there was a giant dagger hot knife just cutting my leg off. It shot pain up and down my leg. I seriously was just about in tears. I ran as far as I could and quiclkly became in Last place. I was determined to finish this race. Jase kept telling me I needed to quit, so the next time i stopped for my knee I was done. I kept stopping to "catch my breath" tho. I was so upset and so sad. I did finish, second to last place. I was just SO angry and so upset. Since it was the weekend I had to wait until Monday to get into the doc. He took xrays and all sorts of stress tests. We determined there is something (some medical word) for something pinched. Here were my options:
1. Surgery 2. cortizone shot with still possible chance of surgery.
I opted for the shot so that I can still maybe possibly run my half marathon this Saturday. As for now, there is no way I am going to try and run and test it out tomorrow like I should. It is still in so much pain. It just throbs like crazy.
If I can run on Saturday i am still going to take it easy and walk a lot more than on a normal race, but what I would give right now to be able to complete this half. PLEASE work shot, PLEASE!!! oh and please don't ever let me get 2nd to last palce in a race EVER again, HOW EMBARASSING!
