  1. Ugh. My knee is killing following my 6k yesterday. I took it easy, but still. I was off running for a year and that first day back, my knee started hurting and I though, “Oh yeah, right. Forgot about you!” Why do they keep doing it to us!? Love the pictures and the lightheartedness of your 42 🙂

    • Hey friend!
      Congrats on your 6K! It’s hard to ignore the knees isn’t it? I’m certainly trying to though.
      Thanks for taking the time to stop and comment. I went lighter this week because I was so dark last week…sometimes the dark pieces linger a bit and I needed a little something positive to get through the week 🙂
      I can’t wait to hop back over to your space to see what you’ve been up to!!

    • Hi Stacie,
      Thank you so much for the kind words! I must give the idea credit to my hubby, though. When I threw him the prompt question, he immediately said, “Why don’t you ask your knees?”
      I can’t wait to get over to the grid and see all the creative pieces people come up with. I so appreciate you stopping and taking the time to comment. Have a great day!!

  2. Such a fun take on the prompt! Man, you are fit — regardless of the knee thing. (I had pretty much all of my remaining shredded cartilage removed when I was 29!) I am impressed. Life is short. Walk if you have to. ❤

    • Ah thanks!
      This was a Tough Mudder. The hubs still complains that I made him sign a death waiver to participate. It was Scott who gave me the idea as the answer to the writing prompt and it was fun to do 🙂

  3. My husband has the same injury (diagnosed by Google because he refuses to go to the doctor) and is out walking the dog right now. The only concession he’s made is not dead lifting or squatting. I’m trying to trust that he knows his body or at the very least, trust that he can handle his own lessons. Love the pictures!!!

    • Hey! I know Dr. Google…doesn’t look near as good in a white lab coat as our family doctor does 🙂

      I hate that for your hubby. It sucks when our bodies just don’t do what we want them to. But, as you’ve pointed out, knowing the limitations and trusting that is a good plan. I drove for 8 hours yesterday and found that more uncomfortable than the 3 mile run the day before. Solution: quit my job 🙂

    • Hi Gina 🙂
      Ah, yes…yoga!! I just know it would be good for me and I’ve tried it off and on for several years. The fact that you stopped running because of your knees and now you love yoga is a good universal sign that I need to try it again. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
      psst! “Addicted” is a very appropriate term 😉
