The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

The Good: First barefoot run of the year yesterday; low 50s, 5 miles with my Red-Hot Smokin’ Wife (hereinafter the “RHSW”); mud squishing between my toes.

The Bad: Umm, it’s not spring. Crunchy scrub instead of grass. Cedar thorns in my baby-smooth feet that haven’t been exposed since November.

The Ugly: Stubbing my big toe while simultaneously trying to avoid 1) a swath of bird poop under an overpass; 2) plowing into the RHSW after attempt #1. Blood. Minor nail damage. Perhaps a ligament strain. I’ll live.

    Ungh. You got an involuntary sqeamish twinge out of me. Yuck.

    Perhaps I write too dramatically. The day after was pretty uncomfortable, but I managed 50 minutes on the elliptical. Ran 5 miles yesterday – it felt much better.
