Current setback: Knee pain.
Days after the Nike Women’s Half Marathon my knees kept hurting. They progressively hurt so bad that I could hardly walk to class. I finally made myself go to the doctor who said the pain I was feeling was a result of “Runner’s Knee,” or pain underneath my patella. The directions the doctor gave me was just more ice, rest, and Tylenol extra strength.
I have ran only twice now since the half marathon. My knees aren’t feeling all the way better but I am glad to be running again.
As soon as I start my run I can’t help but feel at home again.
Through this experience I realize the importance of taking care of yourself to get better fast. I wish I could go back and ice my knees more so that I could be 100% better now, but you live and learn. I am coming back and I am looking forward to getting back in shape.
My goal now is to try a new trail before Thanksgiving break. If anyone has any ideas please feel free to comment!

Going back to my Agricultural Communications class, right now we are working on a video project. The topic is the Cal Poly Rodeo Team. My group got to go out to a practice and see what the team is all about. I’m editing the video clips now and I think my group is on to something. The video isn’t just about a grade in this class; it will be sent to RFDTV for a potential reality TV show. I’ll keep you all posted on that project.
