I wanted to wait until the day was over before I posted, but I ran this morning with the knee brace on my left knee and I didn't have any pain issues. I did about 30 minutes, running 3/1 intervals. It was slow and I'm sure it wasn't pretty, but it was running and there was no pain so I will take that as progress and be completely thrilled!
I continued to stretch and ice all day and didn't feel any twinging.
My plan is to try to do another run on Wednesday or Thursday, and if that goes well, then I will try a somewhat longer run (no more than 5-6 miles) on Saturday. I might try to get over to the pool and swim now that my aquatic center is back open after renovations!
The race is 12 days away...
