In May 2011 I "ran" (walk/jog/walk) my first 5k....this lead to a racing addiction of sorts. I am not winning these races but I am winning in that I go, I run (now I run) and I have tricked a bunch of my friends into coming with me and I have made many lifelong friends in the process.
84 races later (as of 9/23/2012) I decided to start a blog. It will be mostly race recaps but I will soon be starting my marathon training...YIKES
I am 215 races down as of 12/31/13.
I went to the podiatrist to get the shots for my neuromas. I told him about my foot pain from the Diva and after a quick exam now this is what I have.
It is some sort of soft cast that is medicated to try and ease the inflammation. I know that it is a very simple fix and not a big deal at all but I have to keep off my feet for 2-3 weeks minimum. In the big picture I know that is no big deal but my fear lies in that I won't start again. One of the reasons I do so many races is to keep me running. Also what if when I go back to running I am back to square one? Will I give up? That is my usual MO. At the same time maybe a break is just what I need. And the cast kept the shots away so that is a huge plus :)
