But here are my words anyway… Full disclosure right?
I stopped and knelt down to take a picture of Joanne coming up the path (about the 9k mark, she was at the 11k mark). When I got up to start running, I hurried to get back into traffic and just lost my brain for a minute. My first stride with my right foot I absolutely SMASHED it into a lump in the asphalt. So my toes are pointed up and I hit the big part of the foot. I said ‘fuck’ very loudly because this sucker hurt. right away. I didn’t know if I broke it, ripped all the skin off the bottom, or the foot fell off altogether. I didn’t want to look. I ran a bit, and my foot got really hot, then numb, but after a few strides there was no pain. I stopped and looked. It looks ok and the pain went right away. (numb). It’s strangest thing now because there is moments I have to stop the pain is too much to walk on, and then it goes away and I can walk again (still with pain, but at least I can walk) there is no pain when I have no pressure on it.
When I walk on it, my tendency is to supinate to make up for the pain but that doesn’t work, so when I force my foot to pronate, I can walk without limping and it is relatively comfortable. The education never ends does it…?
It is painful enough at times tonight that I am considering a Dr. visit in the am… sucks.
Photo turned out good. so there is that. the evil lumps are behind her.
Race report to come.
