Today, I had an appointment to get an ultrasound of my groin/lower abdominal area to try and pinpoint the source of my pain and rule out a hernia definitively. Of course I also got my hopes up that the sonogram tech would magically pinpoint the source of my pain, correctly identify both the ailment and the cause, as well as prescribe a treatment plan to get me back on the road. Alas, of course, this was not to be. In fact, the exam lasted all of ten minutes, with the tech saying that everything looked OK to her and that the doctor would send the official results to my primary care physician next week. Just like that I was done, and still no closer to resolution, but still in pain. Needless to say, Monday will be another call to the doctor, and the start of another wait for an appointment and the next test. Upbeat, but frustrated because I have not run in 15 days and the pain is no less than it was the last time I ran. On a positive note, it’s not any worse either.

So…… in other news, there is a new craze sweeping the nation called Tebowing. In fact, there is an entire website dedicated to the act of Tebowing (www.tebowing.com), and the more austere or creative place you Tebow, the better. The definition of Tebowing as defined by the site’s creator is “(vb) to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.” I won’t get into any religious aspects of the act of Tebowing, but I will say that I think it’s a great tribute to a great dude and a damn exciting player. Since we are huge fans of the Florida Gators and Tim Tebow, we knew it was only a matter of time before we got in on the action. Here’s Julie and I “Temowing.”

I even won a $25 gift card from Go Sport ID on their Facebook page for submitting our Tebowing picture! Talk about cool huh? I’m pretty excited to get one of their bracelets since the dog chewed up my Road ID, and I’ll be sure to post a review for you once I’ve got it in my hot little hands!
Anyway, I’d like to see your Tebowing pics if you are so inclined, so drop them on my Facebook page or tweet them to me!
Have a great night! Run long this weekend and enjoy it! For all of you running the MCM, good luck and may the wind be at your back!
