I decided to do the Flickr Photo of the Week a little early because I know it will be a crazy week for me. The keyword I decided to use today was “Knees”.
The reason I picked that word was because my knees suddenly started bothering me today. Those of you who know me, know that I’ve struggled with my knees all my life. This summer, I choked out a lot of money to get some physical therapy so that I could run again (because I love it oh so much). A new pair of shoes, some new stretches and $1000 later, the physical therapy seemed to pay off.
It is now March and I’ve been running every other day without any issues, until recently. Last Wednesday I ran hard and started having some knee pains, so I decided to take it easy on Friday and bike instead of run. No issues all weekend.
I ran yesterday, no problems. Today I was simply walking down the stairs and this sharp pain shot into my knees. Very strange. It then stopped hurting when I was standing there, but any pressure makes it feel like a huge bruise that shoots up a little bit. I’m very sad, and I don’t understand it. Tomorrow will be another biking day (unless I feel no pain in the morning, and I might test the waters).
ANYWAY, back to the photo. After I typed in “Knees” in the Flickr search, I scrolled down and this was the first to strike my attention.

TeeRish was the first person I came across when I joined flicker a few months ago, and of course she totally captivated me… I’m so glad to finally have an excuse to copycat her! Let’s go ahead and put it out there- this is a poor imitation, but an imitation none-the-less and therefore qualifies.
Here is the way radder original:
Happy Birthday FGR!
