He's Broken. Can I Trade Him In?

So, Matt ran the Cleveland Half-Marathon in May.

His knee started hurting shortly thereafter, and developed a huge bump on his shin, but he went to a sports medicine guy in Akron, who took an x-ray, and said things were all right.

But he decided to start training for another half-marathon, and his knee was still causing him a lot of pain when he ran more than 3 miles, so he went to another doctor, here in NYC.

They did an MRI on Friday.

Which showed a stress fracture so big that they were shocked he'd been running on it for SIX MONTHS and it hadn't snapped in half.



Poor kid.

But I'll keep him around. He did bring me more flowers on Friday, and they were beautiful.
