You did good today, knee. Thanks for letting me run. Five days of no running was super tough for me. I do think my extra naps and emotionally eating way too many chocolate chip cookies must have helped, though, because it was a good 4-mile run! I was only going to run 3, but felt so good, I ran one more. I get a gold star for that⭐️#overachiever. .
I know that runners will have the occasional aches, pains and set backs. I realize I may have been a little extra sensitive and worried about my knee pain, too. But gotta have a honest moment here...I feel like I do a good job living in the moment and not letting this whole #MS thing define me, BUT once in awhile, reality strikes and I’m reminded that I do have this disease and that any day...I may not be able to run, walk, feel, see...ah the list goes on. So while I am super #blessed to have minimal issues, I do get a little extra sensitive when anything happens that can get in the way of me doing what I love so much. My fear takes over. I work hard every day to not live in fear, because what fun is that? I’m human, though. And I have my silly fears that occasionally make an appearance (and I eat way too many cookies because of it😆) Maybe I’ll be able to run forever...maybe not...I hate not knowing, but I want to have the opportunity to run for as long as my body lets me. I’m not ready to stop anytime soon! So yes...this is me giving some lovin’ to my knee and thanking it for a good run!
