Tuesday's Thoughts......

I'm scheduled for knee surgery on October 25, so I'm going to use the hell out of it up until that date. I can't make it any worse.....

I spent Sunday morning watching and tracking the Chicago marathon and it was gorgeous outside. That was followed with baseball and football watching. Boy, was that fun....

The doctor looked at the X-rays of my knee and said he didn't even need an MRI. He said even I could have probably seen the damage!

The nurse asked about my symptoms and read from a list of common ones. I got 100%, every question I had the ailment... I think she just checked the 'All Above' checkbox....

I'm looking forward to have racing photos without a knee brace on.........

I purchased running gloves from Costco...........

One of my running/cycling friends is on 'The Amazing Race' and I have been having so much fun ripping him while I watch the show. Will is the substitute teacher that can't blow up balloons for shit! They're still in the race but each episode they're near the last team to finish.

Oh noes! Or, I guess, oh yes? Good luck friend, I hope it solves what ails you!

Argh, surgery!!! Ah well, here's hoping a speedy recovery!

Bummer on the surgery buddy. Hopefully it's a fast recovery and you can get back to racing without that damn knee brace soon!

P.S. NOW is when you should visit Florida. Not in MAY. Lol!

I'm so sorry you have to have surgery, but here's some consolation:

It can be fixed! You WILL get through this.

I think it's awesome how little you've complained about this. Your sense of humor will carry you through the ensuing PT. And if you ever need to vent, you know where I live!

super bummer! i will begin sending quick-recovery vibes your way so that you're all stocked up as soon as you wake up (do they put you to sleep for knee surg?) hmm.

costco sometimes has legit / quality stuff in the clothing department, don't they? hope you will get to use them soon after that quick recovery!
