"Faith: you know your gonna live through the rainLord you got to keep the faith!" - Bon Jovi
In life we all have setbacks that challenge us and keep us from reaching our goals. I was almost two weeks into my running program when my knee started to hurt. I should have gone to the doctor sooner. Well, the news isn't terrible - I have bursitis and/or tendonitis in my left leg. This is most likely because my hamstrings are too tight, so I've been given a prescription for physical therapy to help loosen them up. For the next two weeks I need to take it easy on my leg and switch to biking or swimming instead of running. I am still going to run the 5k in May because I know I can do it. Sometimes when things seem difficult in life, we just need to keep the faith and know ourselves. I will do it!
Last night I went to see Bon Jovi with Tolu. This was my early birthday present from her. We watched Bon Jovi power through a set list of 26 songs for almost three full hours of ROCK from the front row of the upper deck at the United Center. I sang along to almost every lyric of almost every song, having been a hardcore Bon Jovi fan for nearly 27 years. Last night we were able to set all our problems aside and be the happiest people alive for a few hours. Thank you Jon, Ritchie, Tico, and David for entertaining us with such enthusiasm. This was the best Bon Jovi show I've seen in years! I love Chicago, I love Bon Jovi, and I love the people in my life who support me -- you know who you are... thank you!
