My last good run was, at this point, about 6 weeks ago.  There were a few short runs in the week after that, but none of them were all that great.  I was frustrated because my knee just wasn’t feeling right and I was cutting them short.  Finally, I just decided I should give up for a while, get the knee looked at, and let everything rest and heal.

So, five weeks with no running.

That was all OK while I was at home.  I had access to a pool and a yoga studio and used both of them frequently.  I was wondering how this Christmas trip was going to go, since I wasn’t going to be able to run or go swimming.  I loaded my computer up with yoga podcasts and figured I’d make it work.  Of course, by “making it work” I apparently really meant “do nothing and sit on my butt for the majority of those 10 days.”

It wasn’t all bad, and it was probably a really good thing for my knee in the grand scheme of things, but man, did it make me a little twitchy.  It has been far, far too long since I got out for a run and I am starting to miss it terribly.  I might have to give it a shot, just to see what happens.  Just 10 minutes.  Maybe 15.  Just enough to get outside and get moving and see if things are still really, really angry.

It’s had 6 weeks of rest.  That should be enough, right?

I suppose we’ll find out.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed, that’s for sure.

Y’all, I don’t even know where to start with Rebekah and Josh’s wedding yesterday. They had a gorgeous location.


They had perfect weather.


They had an adorable flower girl.


And if there was one thing even more adorable than the flower girl, it was the bride and groom themselves.


The two of them were just so obviously overjoyed to be marrying each other. It was everything a wedding should be, complete with excellent food and an awesome party.


Even her dad was out on the dance floor getting down. It was, as Rebekah would say, ruling.


It was just such a happy time, and I was so glad to be able to be a part of it.


Congratulations, guys. I hope all of your days are just as joyful as this one was.
