Current shame-inducing guilty pleasure: Drinking way too many Starbucks Chocolate (skimmed milk ;)) Frappucinos. It's calcium, right? Need calcium for the ol' bones. :)

Current obsession: Stalking Google: need all the info on lower leg problems and stress fractures. :(

Current drink: Still fennel tea, water and diet coke. And Gatorade. Still boring.

Current song: P Diddy - Coming home.

Current need: Sleep. And my body to stay on track. Bloody shin.

Current triumph: Getting 20 minutes of my marathon PR within 51 days. I heart Edinburgh Marathon. :)

Current bane of my existence: My left lower leg: shin. And being scared sh#t of what the outcome of the bone scan will be. Enough said.

Current blessings: A perfect marathon at the Edinburgh Marathon on May 22nd.

Current excitement: New 3:50:33 marathon PR. Enough said. :)

I sprained my back last night. Doesn't it sometimes feel like the injuries will never end? So frustrating! But you will get through this!!!!

I really hope your leg/shin is ok, I know you will be devastated if you have to miss Swissalpine.
