Nope, not a bad joke...I really have pneumonia now. Going to assess this week whether or not to run my race.

Posterior Tibial Tendonitis

So I went to a podiatrist on Monday and I finally recieved some answers! He said my doctor was wrong about it being my bone and that I have Posterior Tibial Tendonitis caused by...drum roll new lighter running shoes...(and rotating in my older running shoes with too many miles...) Furthermore, he said I have normal arches but am an overpronator which is interesting to me because when I went to my local running store and had my run and old shoes analyzed, they said I was a normal pronator. I guess they were wrong and I've been running in the wrong type of shoes all along. MAJOR BUMMER! I'm going to be fitted for orthodics next week which I'm not completely enthused about, but I'm thinking I'm still gonna run this race and just try to finish.

I've been cross training through the stepper, stair stepper, and bike at the gym. I don't really know what else to do. Anyways, that's my update!
