Well it’s official. I will be a DNS (did not start) for the race in Las Vegas Dec. 5. I’ve had a feeling this was coming but now I know for sure.
My plantar fasciitis is all sorts of jacked up and in an effort to avoid cortisone shots and other extreme measures, I have to take some time away from running. I’m also going to be getting custom fit orthotic inserts for my shoes.The molds were made this morning at the doctor. I’m not excited about dropping $200 on two little pieces of plastic, but I’m told they will last my entire life… and if it gets me running again, I’ll do it. Or I’ll go on a payment plan.
Time to focus on non-running activities until the ol’ foot is fixed.
And… to add insult to injury (literally)… Here’s the ol’ e-mail from RnR with race confirmation details:
Thanks to all who donated and supported me in this journey. I will still be travelling to Vegas with the team, I just won’t be running the race.
