1. The Shin: I truly hope the results of the bone scan will be in tomorrow. Fingers crossed. Scared sh#t, though, that they come back telling me there's something bad going on in The Shin. :(
2. What? How old am I?: I had braces as a kid (11 year-old). Had them for two years. Then had a retainer placed behind my front and lower teeth to prevent the teeth from moving around again. Two years ago the retainer behind my front teeth broke. My dentist fixed it. Or at least, he said he had fixed it. Turns out, it was never fixed correctly. So, one of the teeth started moving around a bit, resulting in a gap (2-3 millimeters). Yup. I need a new retainer. The orthodontist adviced me to wear a Invisalign brace thingie for 3-6 months to fix the gap. Hmmm...and I'm kind of okay with the gap. Just don't want it to get worse. But, okay, I agreed to check this Invisalign thingie out. Guess what: you need to wear the thing for at least 22 hours a day (you need to take it off to eat) and are not allowed to drink sports drink or choke down GU when it's in. How the heck am I supposed to do my long runs? Not an option? Any thoughts?

3. Zzzzzzzzzzz: It's crazy busy at work. At this point I truly believe that everyone wants to go to court before their summer vacay. Keeps me going, and might drive me insane. Or already did. Either way, I'm tired. And that won't help The Shin in the whole healing process...
