Scan day...

It's scan day. Luke is in the MRI now and will have his CT right after. 🙏🏻🎗

He ran 41 miles last week, up from his usual 30. The orthopedic surgeon who has treated his stress fractures has encouraged him to limit his miles and mix in some biking - maybe he'll get back to that this week. He has had pain in his good foot the last couple of weeks. Things like that always strike fear in my heart, but it seems pretty clear that it's tendonitis. Fortunately, it doesn't bother him much while he's running.

Saturday was a great day for the GBS team against GBN. Lots of personal best times including Luke beating his previous best by 40 seconds!

Here's what he wrote on lukestrikesback fb last week: 
Hi it's Luke. 
Thanks for your continued support! 
Tomorrow afternoon, the GBS Cross Country team is doing our annual charity run for the Northfield Township Food Pantry. 
I'm looking forward to running 10 miles dedicated to raising funds and awareness of hunger in our community. The GBS cross country team is bigger than it has been in a long time and the food pantry's need is great, so we're hoping to raise more money than we have before. If you can contribute with a monetary donation of any size, it would be greatly appreciated. You can venmo my mom at Amanda-Gregory-18 or let us know if you'd like us to pick up a check. Thanks and have a great day!

He ran 10 miles last Monday and is planning on 10 later today. He can accept donations through today. He'll post some thanks and an update with their final numbers when he has them.
