I have lots of random things to share today. First of all, don’t forget that tomorrow is Global Running Day! Hopefully we can all get out and enjoy some miles to celebrate.
I received my June StrideBox yesterday and I thought I would share some of the goodies that came this month! By the way: for tomorrow ONLY StrideBox is running a deal where you can get 50% off your first order using the code RunningDay17! So if you have been thinking about giving it a try, tomorrow is definitely the best day to sign up.
Here is what was in this month’s shipment:
-Kakookie Energy Cookie
-Kramp Krusher Energy Gummies
-Endurance Tape Energy Gel Alternative
-Spring Electroride Drink
-Gorilly Goods Organic Snack
-StrideBox Essentials Mesh Gear Stuff Sack
I am really intrigued by the gel alternative which is Canadian maple syrup in a resealable pouch. I am also packing the Gorilly Goods (which is like a trail mix) to have as a snack at work today. And I don’t think the cookie will last long. I have a feeling Rob may have gotten to it already…
I also wanted to share an update on podiatrist appointment which had been cancelled last Friday. The first time they can see me (at a time that is relatively convenient for me) is next Tuesday. So hopefully just one more week to go. After 2+ months of waiting, what’s one more week?
One Year of my Injury
Especially when I have been dealing with this injury for a year. That’s right, I hit the one year mark this week. I remember the run when I first noticed my foot pain on June 9th. I had raced in the Baltimore Ten Miler the Saturday before and may have not recovered well from that. After my foot hurt during my run on the 9th I took off 2 full weeks and tried new shoes. Since then there have been so many ups and downs and times that I thought it was better. At least there are a lot of things I am doing right now to get myself back on track.
Thinking back on it, it actually feels completely different than it did when it first started hurting. It used to be more of an arch pain, now it’s like at the top of my foot right below my ankle. So is it still the same injury? I’m counting it as the same but it definitely likes to move around and play tricks on me.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for my Global Running Day post!
