5 weeks

It has been 5 weeks and 3 days since I have run. Not that I’m really keeping track or anything. I have not worn the boot since early this week. I have been trying to at least wear running shoes vs sandals for a little extra support. My foot is slowly improving. Sloooowwwwwwllllllyyyyyyyy…. It still feels tight on the bottom, especially at the end of the day. Fun side note: on Tuesday I looked in the mirror and noticed that my hips were way off. Now they are usually off, but I am talking right hip two full inches higher than the left and also rotated forward. I speculate it is from wearing the boot. Since it is so thick on the bottom, it jacked my entire right side up and out of whack. Thank goodness I work at PT clinic where people know how to put me back together and get my body lined up correctly.

I feel like I am watching racing season slowly slip out of my grasp. I was really hoping to be able to run the 50k at the North Face Endurance Challenge, but at this point I will be happy if I can run the half marathon. Let’s face it, at this point I would be happy to run at all. Period.

Ok, on to happier things. Like pink hair!

See? This is the kind of thing that happens when you take running away from me. I kind of love it.

I got to spend lots of time with my family over the holiday week.

As well as experiencing the most hysterical tube ride of my life. Seriously. I was crying from laughing so hard and had a sore throat from screaming so loud.

And because they tend to make everything better, kittens!

My cousins have two. Lilo & Stitch.

I want one.
