Thanks for admitting that, cause I would totally do that.

Gotta love a little payback.
Mommajb: Wow, that's great that your DS is doing so well & the school situation feels welcoming. That means so much! I'm actually feeling so much better about my DD's school since we didn't get in to the magnet we had applied to. They had been so dismissive of her year abroad and homeschooling. Now we are talking to the other high school, and they have been very encouraging and positive about her.
Nick, I hope you are feeling better.
Modmom, I'd totally do the 10-miler. And I bet you won't be last, but even if so, most of the people watching are probably pretty impressed by anyone who can run 10 miles!
I just went out for my first "run". The whole thing consisted of me and DS on his bike taking a nice hour-long outing, 5 minutes of which was me running. It was not so great. The knee is not ready.
It was generally achy/twingey, and I stopped when I felt that the twingey part was becoming sharper and more focused in one area of my knee.
OK, so that brings me to my new idea. I think I will *not* run any more until I'm done with the ACL reconstruction, or until I have discussed it with my doctor in the states (whenever I get around to finding one). I get mixed messages from the doctors I've seen here, ranging from don't run at all to run carefully (whatever that means!). Also, I definitely don't want another injury to happen and disrupt our lives again.
I think I'm going to swim as much as I can and work on improving.
Oh, and to all of you missing your DHs,
I totally feel that pain, too.
