Re-reading my last post, I didn’t appear overly concerned about my foot. After limping around for 4 days, I finally made an appt. to see Dr. Langer. I was able to get in on Friday before heading out of town. He took x-rays but wasn’t able to see a stress fracture. Still, he put me in one of these just to be safe;

His thoughts are that a couple of weeks in a walking boot early on are better than 6-12 months on lingering pain.

Today is actually the first day when the pain is barely noticeable. So maybe I’m progressing. Needless to say, I didn’t run the half marathon. I’ll call it an $80 donation to the Ashland Chamber of Commerce.

I was thinking more about my running career post from the other day too. Typically, I’ve relied on my running, more than my career, when it comes to pushing myself and having things to focus on. Now that my running is in the crapper, I wondering if that exacerbates how I feel about my career. I’m just throwing ideas out there.

Finally, how’s this for lame? I subscribe to Rachael Ray’s magazine. No, it’s true. Anyway, I got a new issue the other day with a letter stating how big the issue was, along with all the fabulous stuff inside. Well, because the issue was so big, they decided to count it as 2 issues towards my subscription. I’ve never heard of anything so lame. Luckily, it was my last issue anyway.
