Day 242: My Aching Feet, No More

Hallelujah! I ran today with my brand new orthotics and what a difference. As I have been writing about for months, I have been experiencing excruciating pain on the bottom of my feet when running long distances. I'm fine up to about 6 miles then after that it was unbearable. I'd have to stop and sit down and massage my feet to alleviate the pain, and then get back up and continue my running. I knew that without some type of relief I was never going to be able to run a full marathon.

Thank goodness for Dr. Noreen Oswell from The Foot Center ( ! She fitted me for orthotics and off I went! It was actually scary how much better my feet felt. I only hope it continues with each run and that we have finally found a resolution to my poor, aching feet!

Now if I can just find some relief in my aching back and tushy! The pain in my ass and tightening in my lower back was unbearable today. I was doing great for a good maybe 8 miles then the pain became intolerable and I had to walk/run and then eventually just walk the remaining miles. Very frustrating and depressing.

Will this pain ever end!?
