ok… so I’ve written off the toenail on my big toe, the pain has lowered to a tolerable level and, after a week, my toe has stopped bleeding finally… (aren’t you glad you read this…?). I am going to try to go for a bike ride this evening and, if all goes well, get back on the road on Tuesday. I don’t care if I have to duct tape the damn thing up to keep it from falling apart, I WILL be running again by the end of the week. I’ve had it with sitting on my butt, eating Bon Bon’s and feeling sorry for myself (ok… so I don’t really like Bon Bon’s, but I am eating poorly). And I’m sure a cheer will rise from the local crowd because they don’t have to listen to my bitch anymore. Besides, it’s less than a month to the Joker’s Wild Half Marathon in St. Louis and I want to run a sub 2 hour half, so I gotta get crackin’!
