"To be the man, you have to beat the man"

What a crazy couple of days! I haven't been taking much photos and it almost seems like this is turning into a personal blog instead of a photo blog. But the seasons are changing and more photos are definitely coming! I'm just trying to get into the groove of blogging often. This past Saturday I finally went to get my knee checked out. A friend of mine recommended going to Medicine In Motion. They were great there! It wasn't busy at all which is always a bonus. The doctor twisted and bent my knee, made me walk back and forth a few times, asked me a bunch of questions. He then told me I have what's called Patella Femoral Syndrome. Basically, from my understanding, it is the roughing of some of the ligaments/tendons on the inside of the knee cap. I still have to go get an xray to make sure but I will be getting physiotherapy and also working on strengthening my quads on my own.

I probably won't hit my goal this month of 80KM because of it but I'm going to keep jogging and focus on recovery. :)

In other news, happy belated mothers day to all of the mothers out there! I didn't get a chance to post on Sunday but I had an absolutely fabulous home made breakfast with my family. I made the most amazing french toast ever! Matt and I should open a B&B, we would make awesome breakfast. lol.

As no post is a good post without a photo, here are some that I took when I went for a walk on Sunday. I love this time of year when the buds on the trees are coming out and everything becomes colourful again!

ps- I couldn't think of a title for the post, so I asked Matt for a quote and that's what he gave me :)



  1. Tough news about your knee, but it's great to still feel your enthusiasm! Wow! I hear ya about the personal blog, I've been feeling the same lately, but that's about to change entirely over the next few weeks. Those photos are gorgeous, just stunning! Spring is incredible! Ohh, and put me in line for your B&B when it happens!

  2. *sigh - thanks :) I needed some flower details -

    About this becoming a personal blog... I only to photography 6 months out of the year - In arizona it gets to 120 degrees in the summer and I like shooting outside - so half my year is a personal blog - totally cool either way, love.
