Saw the regular doctor today. They took x-rays and there is a suspicious spot in the area where I am having the pain. The next step is for the radiologist to officially read the x-rays and I have an appointment with an orthopedist on Monday to get the verdict. The doctor did recommend that I stay off the leg altogether so I've got a prescription for crutches to fill this weekend. Except for playing around with other people's crutches when I was a kid, I've never had to have them before; this will be interesting.
And the half marathon is definitely out for this weekend. Oh well, it was supposed to rain on Sunday anyway. Plus a 7:30 a.m. race start is much too earlier. Now I get to sleep in! (I'm trying to stay positive...)
