it's just one thing after another...

So yesterday I noticed that the toe I'd had the surgery on last year (for ingrown toenail) was a bit sore. I was so busy that I didn't really think about it again until nighttime. When I looked at it I was appalled. The toenail had grown back where they had treated it to prevent regrowth! I guess it doesn't always take...ugh. Anyway, now it is ingrown again and the toenail is in two parts. I called the podiatrist this morning and begged to get in today, since I'm leaving tomorrow. I told them I'm an athlete and going to do races out of town and could they please find a way to squeeze me in. My podiatrist has been on vacation it turns out, and today is his first day back since then, so he's really booked. Thankfully, they fit me in anyway and I can see him at 1:45 pm.

It seems like there is a conspiracy afoot to keep me down for the count. I am NOT giving up. WMA, here I come - ready or not - and I'm not sure I feel ready, but I'm still coming!!!

Yep, the old "whack-a-mole" with these niggling issues. Tell me about it..."increasing entropy". :-)

Good luck with your race!
