Oh my right knee, you old frenemy

Not a Weekly Run Down, as there was a strong lack of running, but linking up with Deborah and Kim to talk about my knee diagnosis and some other 2019 odds and ends. Am I disappointed in the injury? I think frustrated is a better word. I ran 862.97 miles in 2019. Four half marathons […]
