Well, I decided to just ignore the pain in my knee and run. I ran only 3 miles just to see how it would do. Sure it hurt, but it really didn't get any worse. I think at this point, running, and biking will just strengthen it and probably help it heal. I rode the bike for 45 minutes too. That really makes my legs feel great. I hope to ride my mountain bike home the 800 miles to Palmer from Deadhorse one July - hopefully in 2010. So, riding the bike is a great thing to do along with my running.
I feel like I'M BACK now!
Not quite able to run outdoors up here now though. This is the view at noon the other day - Winter Solstice. I miss the sun!
