I Changed My Mind

I went to Ragged Mountain Running Shop today and bought some KT tape for my knee.

IMG_20150320_133938235While I was there, I talked to Mark (the owner of Ragged Mountain and our local running guru) about my knee pain. I told him how upset I was because I didn’t think I should run the Ten Miler. He seemed to think that it would be okay for me to run as long as I was willing to stop at the first sign of pain.

That decided it.

Well, that and the fact that I’m already registered and my knee has been feeling better for a few days now. It’s been a full week since the last time I tried to run.

I’m nervous, but I can’t just stay home.

I’ve already taped my knee. I’ll run very easy and carry my phone in case I need to bail and call Kurt for a ride.

Now I just need to make it to the finish line.

KT tape has magical properties, right?

I’m pretty sure I read that on the box.

  1. Oh it definitely has magical properties. šŸ™‚ Have a great race and I am crossing my fingers and toes that you are able to make it to the finish line pain free!

    1. The race was Saturday. I had to stop at 4.5 miles. I’m not sure if trying to run it was the best decision after all. I stopped right away, so I don’t think I did any more damage physically, but emotionally I’m a mess.
