Baby angels are smiling upon me. I live in the best area surrounded by numerous running partners, and one of them happens to have a PT husband. Seriously! Baby. Angels.
Brandon Judd, a PT and athlete himself, took some time out of his busy schedule to check out my knee tonight. He confirmed that I do indeed have ITBS, but thankfully it isn't advanced.
