It’s a Boston Miracle!
I can still keep *mostly* running.
Being the classypants that I am, I’ve staved off actual running injuries while, you know, running the last 6 months. I, however, have failed miserably at avoiding “walking” injuries. You know, like spraining my ankle walking out to the car last fall. And apparently aggravating some serious plantar fasciitis by taking a nice stroll in flip flops the day after a race this week.
I know, I’m a genius. And lucky enough for each and every one of you, I actually educate tomorrow’s future leaders at a respected academic institution. World be warned.
The good news: I can run again in a few days.
The bad new: It’s probably going to hurt a lot on and off until Boston.
The worse news: There’s something pre-arthritic in the formation of my foot (and apparently my grandma had whatever it is the doctor was referencing).
So I’m going to ignore the, “Hey you’re 31 and that big toe joint looks pre-arthritic” and focus on “Hey, take it easy, try to run without pushing off your big toe, and make sure to get your Vanilla Ice on” part of the message.
