Recovered from knee injury

I liked writing the four words in the heading.  My left knee has been bothering me - to the point of making running all but impossible - since April this year.  December is almost gone and for the first time in months, I am able to run normally.  What a relief!  The knee has been getting better slowly over the last few weeks, for no apparent reason.  I have been running only in Vibrams for the last 8 weeks or so, and I have been applying Capsaicin (pepper extract) to the knee regularly.  Who knows - it might just be a case of the reduced running of the last few months doing the trick.  Either way, it really feels good to be out there again!  I might even enter a 5K one of these days just to test the waters on the racing front.
