I Am A Runner

On Saturday, I ran 10 miles. I have never run 10 consecutive miles in my life. And when I say ran, I mean there was no walking or stopping (except for a quick potty break at a gas station). I ran and ran and ran. As I walked through my front door, I felt like I could have kept going. I felt great, and I felt like I could really call myself a runner. To top it off, Saturday marked the three month anniversary of my foot surgery. What better way to celebrate the fact that I no longer experience periods of shooting pain followed by tingly numbness every other mile?

I included my other foot in this picture so you can see what my "fixed" foot should eventually look like since it is still a little swollen. I had my final follow-up appointment with the podiatrist last week, and he said it can take up to a year for all the swelling to go away.

  1. You have nice feet!

    And there is no doubt you're a runner! Isn't it so exciting to finally realize that? Ten miles is loooong, especially without taking walk breaks! You rock!

    What kind of surgery did you have? I can see the bump in the before shot... was that bone?

  3. I had a bunionectomy. The bump they removed was bone. It irritated the nerves and muscle around it and caused me a lot of pain.
