This weekend my throat and ear started to hurt and this morning it has not improved. Just to be on the safe side I am taking today off. We are leaving on Friday for our anniversary trip so this is not the time to push it. The good news is that I have made an appointment in Moscow with a sports medicine doctor to take a look at my knee! It is improving every day but because of my races coming up need I need to find out what the problem has been. Hopefully, I will be able to start training soon for my half marathon coming up in April, if not, I know there are other races in the year and it is not the end of the world. I feel good about the upcoming year, mostly because we will be living back in the US, but I am excited about the goals I plan to reach!!
