Because all *road trips require a snack. *I define road trips as anytime we are in the car for 30 minutes or longer.
Clearly Brooke was stoked about our road trip.
Usually I go see Dr. Bennett on Wednesdays when he works in his office near me but I wanted my foot fixed ASAP so we drove up to his SLC office yesterday. My mom joined us to help out with Brooke during the appointment so that we could really get to work on putting my foot back together.
Dr. B did a few tests on my foot and then told me, ‘It’s an easy fix.’ I let out a huge sigh of relief. My big toe was jammed up pretty good which turned my foot into a hoof like thing rather than a foot when I ran;) My toes weren’t spreading out as I was landing which caused the inflammation and pain. I think tying my shoes too tight and my body just feeling run down from all of the training caused it. He unjammed it, did some adjustments and it felt a lot better as soon as I stood up. I’m going to pay close attention to it for the next few days but let’s just hope it is all ready to go! Injury mystery #452 of mine that he has fixed.
On the way back home my mom and I decided we needed to grab dinner. We originally planned on going to a salad bar but then all of a sudden burgers sounded better. We texted my dad to meet us and next thing we knew it, we were all at In-N-Out.
I’m not sure if she is afraid of me or the cheeseburger at this moment.
We are really into going to the movies and the only thing better than going to the movies is when it is a free movie (thanks Rachelle for the gift card!!!)
Brooke loved it! When taking Brooke to the movies we stay out in the halls (Brooke runs up and down them and gets out all of her wiggles) during the previews and go in right when the movie starts. This makes it so that it isn’t too long for her to sit through…
When the gas station has peanut butter, chocolate and vanilla froyo all at the same time, it is kind of a must to go for a cone. Brooke had fallen asleep after the gas station on our way home so I just sat and finished eating my ice cream cone in my car in the dark parking lot. I could not possibly get any cooler these days.
Just want to give my foot a special thank you for obeying me and feeling better. That was a close call. A close call that made my heart almost stop beating for an entire day.
A reader emailed me something that she has learned about running that I love!!! —> I’ve learned that a run can make a bad day better, but also that a bad run shouldn’t ruin your day.
SO so true. It’s amazing how our runs can turn things/our perspectives around for the better and if we can learn to not allow the bad runs to affect the rest of our day negatively, we are set!
PS guess who I get to hang out with today….
Ever had any foot injuries? Do you have a side of your body that gets injured more often?
-My right side loves to get injured.
Who do you get to hang out with today?!
Do you prefer to go to the movies or to watch a movie while sitting on your own couch?
Any In-N-Out fans?
