Hobbled Firefighter Dave

Hopefully I’m only temporarily incapacitated, but I screwed up my knee from overrunning in California while we were waiting for my work permit and putting our house on the market. I’m going to seeing a running specialist (orthopedic surgery) on Monday who should be able to tell me what I did, but my Google self-diagnosis is acute runner’s knee. Ugh. After one month of intense training and impressive weightloss (40 pounds), I have not been able to run (or walk without a limp) for the last couple of weeks since my injury. My reading says I should stop running downhill, forever, except during races…. I’ve learned, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to run again in two to three more weeks, and in the meantime I’m lying low.

Well, so that I don’t end on a sour note, here’s my new badge (prior to weightloss, in case you were wondering.)

Also, my knee injury is not my ingenious way of avoiding the pack test, I could have easily done it according to my training….
