      Glad the walk felt OK. (It's so steamy down here that you aren't missing anything by not running!) Hope all this works out for you. GET WELL SOON!!

      Hahaha. I had the opposite problem. I thought I'd do a trail run in the heat and got freaked out by snakes sunning themselves. I'm SO afraid of getting bitten by a rattlesnake that I'm a big baby about all snakes, it seems. See pictures!

      Thanks guys! I saw the PT this morning for a re-eval, and he thinks I'm like 75% healed...so that's good :) I'm continuing to be patient. It's been about 7 weeks since the tear/sprain occurred.
