My hip continues to improve bit by minuscule bit. I'm no longer expecting any miraculously pain free run to happen anytime soon. More likely, I will realize, 3 days or a week or 2 months from now, that my hip doesn't really hurt anymore.
I watched the womens' Trials online this morning, and what struck me more than anything else was the picture of Deena Kastor and Magdalena Lewy-Boulet standing together on the finish line, welcoming Blake Russell to the team. Sentimental fool, tha's me.
