update

saw the specialist at the cast clinic at the hospital last week. hairline fracture of the patella. luckily, the crack didn't go all the way through and the interior face of the patella that makes up the knee joint was not displaced. meaning: treatment is no lower body exercise for four to five weeks, another set of x-rays and a gradual return to running etc provided that things are healing up nicely. avoided a big splint and more importantly surgery.
feeling very fortunate.

Take care of them knees. Missing a marathon is better than not being able to run for a reaallly long time. Heal them sucka's up. BTW--Chuckanut 50 rocked. Such a fun race, and things are looking good for the Vancouver Marathon for me. 3:05-3:07 is the time goal if all goes well.
