Nevermind, it's broken

Or "chipped," as the doctor said. The break is on the bottom of my toe, which makes sense if you think about it; imagine a karate chop to a piece of wood.

Fortunately, the doc says I can run if it's not aggravating the toe. So now I have to tape it up and give it a try. The tough thing is having to be totally honest with myself. If it hurts, I have to stop.


  1. Sounds painful! Good luck with that and be careful.

  2. It actually doesn't hurt at all. Gets achy if I move it around too much, but that's it.

    It's kind of cool - I can get all the sympathy with none of the suffering.

  3. Bummer, but at least you can keep running ... hopefully. Cheers!
