And finally, I want to acknowledge that making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin. Stephen Cherniske,
The feet are 50% better, tomorrow should be 75% and by race day Saturday 100%.
I have kept them dry and just keep apply benzion tincture to them and zeasorb powder to them. There are still a couple that are draining. They are in between my first and second toes and my left pinky toe. Taking the day off from work yesterday helped.
I will loose my left big toe nail, and second toe nail. You can't tell in the picture but during my race they got ripped up when I hit a rock.
I did go out and run 1 mile since it was national running day. Had to run ;-) ran with Rocky. Felt ok I could barley walk yesterday so I am healing fast. Going to get some homeopathic medicine at work called cantharis its awesome for blisters. I use to use it all the time, forgot about it.
I hope you will all send Andy and I positive thoughts this weekend. I will be going for my 5th finish at San Diego 100 and Andy for #6. He is going to run the whole way with me. I feel sorry for him cause I'm going to be slow.
Most important is that we have fun.
the number is the lowest score.
