CM10: DNS

Yes, peeps! It's true.

I will not be starting at the marathon this weekend. My running season this year is pretty much DONE, finished.....bu-bye!

My knee has been giving me a lot of crap since my pre-20 mile long run weekend. It has not stopped. I have been through 3 full weeks of PT and starting my 4th week tomorrow. The pain, clicking, locking, and stiffness is just getting to me.

I have had a MRI last week. It didn't show anything clear for a meniscus tear so I had a cortisone injection this afternoon. The injection brought 8 glorious pain-free hours before the pain came back like a b****! But it was localized in the joint where most of my pain has been coming from.

I should know what the next step is by Wednesday when I call back with a status update to my doctor. I want to run to running...period. This weekend will be tough, but I know that I have couple of great friends coming into town and I plan to put 110% into making sure that this is THEIR weekend. I don't want to feel sad about this. It's time to move on and take control as much as I can.

I plan to avenge this marathon and make 2011 the best running season ever. I promise!

You definitely have a great attitude about this. You worked so hard and all that training will pay off eventually. The important thing is to get better so that you can run well into old age! Good luck!

It's a good decision. You have many many more marathons in your future.

Crap! I just checked to see if we could meet at the expo, but now I see you're not running. What a drag for you. I know how excited you were. I hope your knee gets better soon. How is Josh?

So sorry you can't run the marathon after putting in all that training, but you're saving yourself for bigger and better things.

So sorry to read this...I do know how crappy this is. But, I agree with the great attitude...watch 2011! Hope they figure out how best to help you real soon. Hugs.

Okay, that would be "watch out 2011" :)
