Recovery

So last month, I explained the skin issues I’ve been dealing with.  I didn’t mention that I’ve also been dealing with an injury at the same time.  This injury started shortly after I got back from Colorado in June.  I went out running one day and had a terrible pain in the top of my foot – so bad I couldn’t walk properly for a few steps after I stopped running.  I was so scared I had a stress fracture… and so after much convincing from other running friends, I finally went to a physical therapist for an evaluation.
