On an entirely different note,

Can anyone volunteer for the Ras na hEireann number pickup today at Marathon Sports in Boston today from 3-6:30??

I signed up to work it, but I have a student faculty basketball game on the South Shore at the same time.? If you signed up for tomorrow I'd gladly switch with you.?

You also get three of the Cambridge summer race series races comped, which is a $75 value.

Please let me know if you can help out, I'd appreciate it.?

Hi Jing,
To be on the safe side, I think it'd be a really good idea to have your knee checked-out by a physician. ?It's possible that you may have strained one of those vital tendons/ligaments in your knee when you rolled your ankle. ?(Perhaps it tried to overcompensate for the sudden loss of balance?) ?If the doctors say nothing's wrong, a little bit of ibuprofen before a run may not be a bad idea. ?However, I don't recommend doing this before seeing a doctor because you don't want the ibuprofen masking a potentially-getting-worse injury.

On another note, I'm not sure which Brooks you purchased but I have their Infinity running sneakers and they are AMAZING!! ?I chose these because I also have over-pronation and flat feet, but also had a lot of knee pain and back pain. ?Granted, I tend to be a treadmill princess (as an extra precaution on the knee & back pain) but my pain has nearly disappeared completely. ?(What's great about these shoes is that most I've seen only have the air-like padding underneath the heals but these one have them under the balls of the feet as well... which made a huge difference for me!)

Best of luck, go get checked-out! ?:o)
