My Toe Hurts

I have no idea why.  It’s not bad but a strange shooting pain every once in a while.  I think it is one of those all-in-your-head pains.  I have been taking an all-over body inventory every few hours today.  It doesn't help that my Little Buddy was smothering me last night with a 105 temperature.  I am sure to get Ebola (or strep or whatever little kid kooties he has).  But so far I feel ok, aside from the little toe pain that has been there for the last two inventories.  I’m not worried.  A little toe pain will not slow me down, ok it may slow me down but it wont kill me.

Thanks to all of you who have wished me well!!! It means so much to me! I have my bags packed and my carry on full of my marathon shoes,running gear, and marathon outfit. 

More to come!!!!!

Today I am grateful for:

AN the RB for hanging with Lazy Dog this week!

Jess and Katie for plant sitting this week!

Everyone who had any part in helping me get to this point! i couldn’t have come this far without you all (Jess, AN the RB, Paul, RED, Mel, Kerrie, Jill, Zoe, Amber, all my bloggy peeps this means you!)

  7. I was laughing when I read the part about taking a body inventory . . . don't lose anything.

    Seriously - Enjoy this time . . . leading up to your first marathon. Soak it all in.

    Relax and run . . . simply run for the fun of it. Run because you can.

    Maybe run a mile for me - I have a stress fracture in my right foot and can't run for 4-6 weeks.

    ENJOY

  9. Have an amazing trip! I'm sure the pain is phantom, but you could always ice it to be sure (I ice anything that flares up).

    My husband just got me the Garmin 405 and I noticed you have one as well...any tips on how to get the most out of it while training?
