This is a Nightmare
After a really awesome 20 mile run on Saturday with minimal discomfort, my foot started hurting Monday. Like, really bad and getting worse. So I went to the doctor today, and he said if it were up to him, he'd assume it's a stress fracture and boot me for six weeks. But since I REALLY, REALLY want to run my race in two weeks, he ordered an x-ray and MRI. The x-ray had no obvious fracture. The MRI is scheduled for the 13th, and in the mean time I'm staying off my feet as much as possible (says the mom of four active children!) I'm holding out hope that I can still run, or at least walk at least the Half. This is just terrible timing.
