      Hey Alan, thanks for asking Smile The knee is ... okay. It doesn't hurt now, but does hurt when I'm running Sad It's pain, bottom outside area. I'm going to keep resting and icing (booo) and probably make an appointment with Univ of Md Sports Medicine. I told James I was thinking about it, and he said "well, that's why we have health insurance." I want to find a doc that understands how important running is, and not say "well, find something else to do." How have you been?

        Trisha, maybe this can aid your discussion with the doc? http://www.sportsinjuryclinic.net/cybertherapist/knee_injuries.htm By the way, I posted a couple of questions about MCM in the Racing Forum. When you're not too busy and get a chance, would you mind responding? I know you live in the area and have run/are planning to run MCM. Thanks. By the way, Alan, I have been reading Hal Higdon's book Marathon: the ultimate training guide (um, not so much). In it he quotes an Alan Ford from Loganville, Georgia. Now, I have a hard time believing such a coincidence is possible, but given that you're the only Alan F in Georgia I know of, thought I'd mention it.

          I am doing well. Finally getting our of my training funk and getting back in gear a bit. Hope you can find a good doc like mine. He works with runners and triathletes and understands how "we" think. Keep us updated on the progress.

                  This is without permission from Higdon, but given that Alan said it, I'll assume he's okay Wink: Alan Ford, Loganville, Georgia"I began running when I started a new job and most of my coworkers were runners. I started running with them at lunch, and a 5-K race led to a 10-K race, and that lead to a half marathon. I was hooked, and you know what happened after that." Hal Higdon, Marathon: The ultimate training guide. Advice, Plans, and Programs for your 1st Marathon or 50th, Rodale, 2005. There may be another quote attributed to you as well. I can't quite remember.

                    There is another quote where I talk about pacing during a marathon- not going out too fast, even pacing, etc.

                            Or, um, partly true. But this I cannot discuss!
