Personal:

I was a single mom.  Two times over.  We all survived, despite the fact that I make atrocious decisions.  Then, I met a man I didn't deserve.  And he loves me so much.  And I love him. We lived in sin and bought a house for two years then hired a judge and officially got married(to our great delight and also the delight of our mothers), then a month later he was diagnosed with cancer.  Well we survived all that and he's 100% fine now.  But, we're really out of shape and really busy with kids and jobs and running just isn't my priority and there's so many other layers to all of it, but I'm running anyway.  This is my failure blog now.  Just to log that one run a week if I snag it.  
Somehow that matters and I want that run recorded.

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

I will not be running for a while, but am grateful to be alive.  I was at work last night with my partner and some firefighters at a car wreck strapping a pt to the cot when a car skidded into us at about 70mph and hit us.  I flew about 30 feet.  It tore my knee open and I have some road rash on my head but no broken bones.  They sewed me up and sent me home, will know more about the extent of the damage when I see the doc tomorrow.  I can bear partial weight and hobble with crutches so that is a good sign. Might be better when the swelling goes down my leg is huge.  We all suffered only extremity injuries which is amazing.  We are all very lucky to be alive, that kind of impact is fatal more often than not! I am just happy to be alive, had a fleeting thought for a sec that I was about to die, but hit the ground and my leg hurt so knew I was very much alive.

good ol DOMS.  much sorer today than yesterday.  every little thing aches, but, it is a good happy reminder that I am alive to ache.  appointment is actually tomorrow morning, not today.  Once the aching subsides I am going to start working out, core, upper body, abs, whatever I can do, and will hit the pool as soon as the stitches are out and I have the go-ahead.  Never thought I would look forward to swimming but the thought of the water supporting my body and floating and moving sounds very appealing and I cannot wait.  One of the wpd officers said we looked like popcorn in our yellow safety vests flying into the air, and the poor original patient strapped to a yellow spineboard twirled through the air like a helicopter blade...and landed with no additional injuries.  Now THAT is a bad day, getting in a car wreck and then getting hit by a car before you can even get put into an ambulance!

Doctor day.  Scheduled for an MRI.  Have to stay on crutches, no weighbearing allowed.  I have not been a good patient but I am being good now, sitting in a recliner and doing lots of ice so that hopefully the swelling goes down.  I hope it's just the swelling and infammation causing pain and that nothing is seriously torn.  I overdid it yesterday and paid this morning with a massively huge knee, thought it might explode.  Doing much better this eve, the lazy life is kinda boring.  Watching the news--Texas, Boston, all the tragedies--that nips feeling sorry for myself in the bud right away.

I did a lot of crutching around, hard work.  Then I did 40 minutes of abs and arms at home, modified.  my MRI is Monday so will find out if surgery is needed or not.  Swelling is way down today.
