Yesterday was September 1st, there are 30 days in September, and the race is on October 8th. I thought I was going crazy because how could it be day 36 in the countdown if 30 + 8 = 38… Oh… duh. The day of the race and the day that it is do not count… Phew! I thought I was having a stroke or something.
My foot is hurting me again today, It’s better than it was but I definitely need to be careful.
Today I spent time with my cats in the morning because I am ditching them for the weekend to go to Maryland. Also because they don’t hurt my foot to hang out with like running and walking might. Tonight when I get to my parents house I’ll ice it before I go to bed. We have plans to run in the morning so I am really hoping laying off today and icing it tonight is enough to set it straight. If not, well, I guess I’ll take this as a rest weekend.
One way or another, CRAB FEAST SUNDAYYY!
