It was almost this time this year when Dev and I caught the running bug. This year we are doing the 10K instead of the 5K though. I can’t believe it’s only been a year. It felt longer than that.
The night before I was still feeling my Achilles and Dev was so concerned that she said that I had to do something about it otherwise she wouldn’t let me run. So we went to the Famous footwear to look for an insert . So we talked to our friend,Mike,a fellow runner who happens to work at the store. He said that my Achilles could be because of the shoe I’m wearing. I also got the same advise from Dr. Abe,our running mentor,He said that we should log our shoe mileage.
So instead of just looking for a shoe insert I ended up buying a shoe. I saw an Asics that was on sale. I tried it on and it was a perfect fit. I also bought the insert.
Race day morning and I was still feeling my Achilles when I got up. We ate our coffee and bagel we bought from Panera. Arrived at the start about 30 min early. It was DST change so we had an extra 1 hour. It also means that the sun is already up early.
I planned to do a run walk just only and thanks to Doc Abe I was able to do it. We did good. I felt the Achilles but it wasn’t a really bad.
I still had to ice it though.
