Well, I broke down & scheduled it. I'm having knee surgery on Monday May 17. I blogged about the problem in "An Ice Pick to the Knee."
A little piece of me is bummed right now, mourning the loss of 3 months of running right through the primo summer months. I'll be on crutches for a month (May 17-June 17), then I can't run for 2 more months (until Aug 17).
Anyway, I know several things: (1) It's only a tiny part of me that's bummed…overall I'm SO thankful for what's going on. (2) I know God'll use this like he uses everything for good. (3) There are people out there with REAL problems that I pray for on a weekly basis, on our Grace Church prayer list.
Regardless, I ran 7 miles last night hard to protest my (self-chosen) upcoming surgery. 🙂
