Hardest 5k so far...

I ran the Race for the Cure yesterday in the beautiful Garden of the Gods. It was incredible- 7000+ runners all running for a common goal. I felt very blessed to be a part of it.

Now that I got the mushy stuff out of the way... OUCH. It was mostly uphill at high elevation (over 6000 above sea level). The last mile is downhill, which killed my knees.

No, I mean it really killed my knees. I'm not entirely sure what I did, but my left knee is hurting an awful lot. I iced it all day yesterday, wore my stabilizing brace and took NSAIDs all day. It didn't help. The knee is swollen, and I needed some big dog pain help to sleep last night.

Looks like I have another 10 day running break in my near future. Swimming and biking, I guess we'll be having another ilicit affair. Joy.
