Doctor visit recap

On a good note, the foot doctor told me that I have nicely shaped feet with a beautiful curvy arch. Just beautiful... those feet.

On a bad note, we did an ultrasound on my is not pregnant. But my plantar fascia is super inflamed. He said the measurement on it was nearly 3x as wide as normal plantar fascias. Fabulous. Luckily, no bone or heel spurs.

I am on a recovery plan of twice daily 2-pill doses of Nalfon for anti-inflammation (which make my stomach feel like it is ripping itself apart), a taped up foot to take the pressure off the plantar fascia, lots of stretching and stuff, and possibly sleeping with a night splint to stretch my foot while I sleep.

He said no running til I come back in two weeks for a checkup. I can, however, continue to enjoy the elliptical and bike for exercise. Awesome.

So, there ya go.

Keeping the non-running blog streak alive!

So, I am going on another cruise on February 23rd to the Western Caribbean. For those of you keeping tabs, I just went on one in December. I kinda like vacation. And the Caribbean. And it is kinda a cruise "date" with someone I have only been seeing for three months. A date that lasts 7 days and we will be sharing 180 sq foot cabin.

It almost sounds like a reality show.

Can't wait to head home tomorrow- Boston is freezing my butt off! I have finally decided that I will start my training for the Cooper River Bridge Run- my homecoming to racing several years ago. Hey- wait! Yall should come run it too!! Mendy, David- you have no excuse. Jess- come on up! Marcy- NY sucks this time of year-come to Charleston. Jayhawk and all your blogging posse- Charleston is waiting!! Bring your mom- plenty of bourbon to share! All you other folks- come on!

OK, I kinda am motivated now.

This might be the worst running blog ever created...

Why is it the worst? I guess cuz I don't really talk much 'bout running lately. I should rename my blog to Me and My Free Weights or Me and My Pilate Mat or Me and My Elliptical Machine. Not much running though. And I am still OK with that. I still have yet to make it to the sports medicine place to look at my foot. So, I am keeping on working on and focusing on eating better.

And starting tomorrow on United flight #something at 6:30 AM- I am back on the road (or in the skies). To Chicago. Sweet, sweet Chicago. Still love that city :)
