I just checked out my last blog post and I haven't written a thing since April. Wow. I have hardly missed my blog. So many things happening and so little time to even write a quick note. I wrote in my last blog about my injured toe and the troubles it has caused me. I have exhausted all the treatments and now I am left with a big toe that is getting stiffer and stiffer. My friend, who just happens to be an Orthopedist, says that maybe my toe is started to fuse on it's own. I can live with that as long as a fused toe doesn't hurt! We will see. This summer has been busy with lots of fun runs and hikes in the mountains. My friends and I traversed Zion National Park in April and had a blast. I ran Silver State 50 miler in May and managed to dehydrate myself right into the hospital. I ran in Emigrant Wilderness at Kennedy Meadows twice and enjoyed doing Safety Patrol at Western States 100. Last month I ran The Tahoe Rim Trail 100 and managed to slowly cross the finish line good for a Silver buckle. Thanks to Marc Dube for helping me finish under 30 hours. All in all, my toe is handling the stress I have put it under. It is painful, but not unbearable anymore. That makes my heart happy. In September, I will run The Bear 100. I am getting excited for that adventure.
