Goal:

How about not getting more injured and being able to run 3 miles by the end of the year. I think that's a good enough goal for the moment.

    The physical therapists wanted to try this tape on my leg to see if it would relieve the pain. On the road to recovery...but won't see a half marathon until next year.

      I hope therapy helps and gets you back to running soon! We should get together sometime soon to chat; I feel like it's been forever! I did physical therapy in high school for bursitis of my knees and it sounds a lot like what you're doing now. It didn't seem like it was helping at first, but then when I was done with it I felt a lot better. And I've never had bursitis problems since!
