My heel hurts.....


...and its 12 days before my "big race" in Nashville. 13.1 miles, I believe it is.


My heel hurts pretty bad. Remember...I was in the band. I'm a musician. I've never been an athlete, so I'm not used to this sort of thing...pain. Ugh!


It seems that I've got myself a good case of plantar fasciitis. That's the big word for "my heel hurts because I've been putting a lot of weight and pressure on it." To treat this plantar fasciitis, I've been stretching it, and icing it, and resting it. I've swallowed more ibuprophen than I know.

...sooooo....

I'm asking all my peeps out there the say a prayer for my heel when you pray. I really, really, really want to do this race and finish!

***04/14 Update...my heel has felt a little better today. Please keep praying! I'm shooting for a good long walk in the morning- the last long walk before the race! Nite!

Theia,
shoes are very important. Make sure to wear real good support like a Saucony or Brooks, Nike etc. are not really as good according to foot specailists.
