Too bad about the race but it sounds like it was absolutely the right call to stop. You're so wise! :-)
I agree. Seems like the right call, but a really difficult one to make. Sorry about the disappointment, but it's definitely worth not ruining a knee!
I remember Mhairi. Nice to hear that she is running - does she do any orienteering these days?
Agree with Boris & Cristina - definitely admire your ability to recognize what's going on & what you should do about it...despite the desire to keep going.
You guys are SO supportive! Thanks! I just feel like a big wimp, so it's nice to hear that it was the reasonable thing to do. Next time I will start slower and I am trying to get my knee happy for The Otter. I still really want to run it...
