sore ankles and birthdays


well, sore ankle. just one.

Remember how I twisted it two weeks ago!? well, you know how it goes. You don't want to stop. So, you don't. And, then it turns around and bites you in the ass. Finally went to the Doc today at the sports medicine clinic. fortunently, my sprain (most likely) is only a second degree... 1st degree is what people do frequently. 3rd degree is surgical. Apparently, mine is somewhere in the middle of that, leaning towards the 3rd degree, but the Doc didn't seem to be wildly concerned. she just said: stop running! keep biking and swimming!
and guess what!?

my coach already told me that ;)

so, here we are.

Today, is the 14th birthday of one of my most favourite people in this world. I remember this day, 14 years ago, very very vividly. My life was changed with beautiful Makayla came into this world. My brother had his first daughter when I was 12. And, we have been close for a long time, and the only thing that I regret with her is that I cannot see her every
day. So, here are some pictures

*Makayla* if you read this: you are beautiful and so loved and worth more than you can ever feel and you bring joy to everyone around you and life would not be the same without you in it. I hope that this next year presents amazing surprizes around each corner, and more blessings than you can imagine. I LOVE YOU MORE THAN YOU KNOW!

Here are some pictures from over the years, from most recent, to some older ones...
