On Jan 5th, while Pharmie and I were in AZ visiting my grandparents, I decided to go on a hard 9 mile run. Apparently my feet weren’t used to running in 70 degree conditions, because I felt the bottom of my feet getting pretty sore.
The next day was the day that Pharmie and I went hiking / climbing / running in the Lost Dutchman State Park and the Superstition Mountains. I tried not to think about my feet too much, and they held up OK.
That night, I took a look at the mess. It was throbbing, but it didn’t look bad:
I think I’ll live. Oh, and hopefully your retinas heal after seeing all this...
p.s. Yesterday (on my Examiner page), I published my interview with local elite triathlete Cathy Yndestad. We've met a few times in passing, but we're not chummy buddies or anything. In fact, I'm surprised that she still talks to me after I volunteered in T2 at Ironman WI 2009 and helped her hubby, Kerry, change into fresh tri shorts; only I helped him put them on BACKWARDS - something he didn't notice until Cathy pointed it out to him AFTER he had finished...
Anyway, here's a link to her interview on what she does over her off season, along with her 4 tips for us. Check it out if you get a moment. (I'm sure Cathy will be THRILLED to see her name on a post full of my blistery feet...) Thanks!
