You're not doing well are you..Maybe you should start pretending with me too.

From JD on Thu, May 12, 2011 at 15:35:19 from

If I have to run just 2 or 3 miles a day to fix it I will. No bigee. Easy when injured wins the race.

From Lysa on Thu, May 12, 2011 at 15:41:41 from

Well I hope it gets all better soon.

From JD on Thu, May 12, 2011 at 15:59:32 from

It will, as long as I keep washing my hands...
