It's a Boot-iful Day in the Neighborhood!

So what is new in my hood? Well about a month ago now I started to have foot pain. Not awful foot pain but "Man something doesn't feel quite right" type of pain. I waited a week to see if it would go away or get worse. It did stayed. So I waited another week and finally found the time to get an x-ray. Verdict I have a stress fracture in my right foot. So 3-6 weeks in a boot for me.

First off I am not 100% sure what initially caused the foot pain however since my foot started bothering me it has been a target for my kids. They are forever stepping on it, landing on it, jumping on it, kicking it during karate practice, etc. I just can't seem to catch a break with that foot lately. 

I have now been in the boot for about two weeks. It is amazing how my foot doesn't hurt at all when I have the boot on. I must say though, that thing is HEAVY. I waddled before with my turned out feet but with the boot on it is so much more obvious. I am a sight to behold for sure. 

I am pretty bummed about the cut back in my walking and mileage etc. I can't wait to get the boot off and hopefully be as good as new. Cause there is nothing like watching people have fun and not being able to take part. Summer is pretty much here and I am ready to enjoy (well except for the heat)!
