Quick update. I'm still in injury limbo. I've worn a walking boot for over a month now to relieve pressure on my sesamoid bones. A week and a half ago the doc checked me out and said he's turning me over to a different podiatrist who specializes in orthotics. The idea is that I'll be fitted with a pad to offload that area in my shoe - not a complete orthotic. He said to wear the boot another 10-14 days, "or until you get your insert." That was before I found out I couldn't even get an appointment with the new doctor for a month. It's been 10 days, and I'm gradually wearing the boot less and less, because it's still two and a half weeks till my appointment to get the pad, and I can't stand this thing any longer!

I have decided that I'm going to try wider shoes - my foot can't tolerate some of my shoes that have narrower toe boxes. 

Haven't spent much time around this joint lately, although I have cheered on the latest Loopster exploits from afar.

 So there's all the news that's fit to print. There may have been some censoring before I posted this - expletives deleted, and the like.

I’m not one to curse much out loud but in my head while I was injured I’m pretty sure every other word in my head began with F...

Hoping the orthotics work out.

I didn't even know we had sesame seed bones. I hope it gets resolved soon!

Altra brand shoes are made wider in the toe box. Maybe try a pair of those. They're also zero drop though so not sure if that's an issue.

You've always been such a positive voice in the Loop. And even when you're not running, you'll always be a runner at heart. Does a musician ever stop being a musician? Always good to read a blog from you!
