Chapter 2 page 314 - good news?

Here's another quickie post for you . . . the MRI results came back totally fine.  Prayers indeed answered!  I'm beyond thankful to have such a great report, but now what - what is causing the pain and how do we fix it?  It seems to stump my NP and PT friends . . . hmmmm.  Oh well, for now, I'm super thankful to know it's not some tear or something requiring surgery and I have a green light to run the half on Saturday (woot woot!). 

I can't wait to show you what I have lined up to wear (and that's definitely a statement I have NEVER typed on this blog - EVER!).  Stay tuned - that post coming as soon as I can . . . I'm getting things checked off my "race prep to do list".  Yay!!!

Thanks for your thoughtfulness and well wishes for my knee and upcoming race - all were very much appreciated!


  1. Good to hear.

    Sometimes it seems that your pain will go away once a new pain develops. Like if you get a bad headache one day -- then suddenly you realize your knee no longer hurts.

  2. Glad your MRI results came back good. When I had my MRI done, the results showed that I had runner's knee: an irritation of the cartilage underneath the kneecap. I wouldn't be surprised if that's what you have.

    I'm with Holly. I get what I call "phantom pains" frequently. Sometimes, I'll get a weird pain, but it often helps me focus off the the old pain that I'm experiencing, which is fine with me. That happened before a race, too. I had a weird pain in my knee, but after I ran the race, my knee felt fine. So weird!

  3. Glad you got a good report and am excited to see about this outfit!! :)

  4. WOo hooo!!! Fantastic news!! I can't wait to see your outfit!
