Doc says running's okay. We'll see.

I went to the Dr. today about my wrist, which has been nagging me for about a month, and my knee, which started hurting while I was running last week. Since I'm set to run an 8.4 mile leg of a the Atlanta Relay Marathon on Oct. 28th, I wanted to make sure I haven't injured myself. Fortunately, the sawbones says that it's probably just tendonitis, and that I should be fine with icing it and popping naproxen sodium twice daily. I hope he's right. In other news, the pain has absolutely NOTHING to do with my age. Remember, I'm younger than I once was.
