Wow, yesterday was a whirlwind. I started my day out with a nice 45 minute swim and enjoyed a long hot shower at the gym. It was heavenly! lol. I went to see a Doctor in Corte Madera who originally made my orthotics, and he made some adjustments to them and gave me hope for running in my future. Apparently, he saw 3 patients just last week with some of the same issues I am having. I was glad to hear that I am not the only one. I left his office and immediately went to a few stores and bought a nice Northface jacket and a running skirt and a pair of running shorts. I think I feel better now! Shopping always does that for me. The problem is that I have nothing to wear except for running stuff! I use to have a magnet on my refrigerator that says, "I feel like such a failure. I have been shopping for over 20 years and I still don't have anything to wear". Hilarious, but true.
