Weekend Fun.

Well, I saw the doctor last Monday and he diagnosed plantar fasciitis and a heel muscle strain, so they casted me for orthotics and I can't run for 3 months. I was really sad about it, but I'm coming around and just hoping that by the end of the 3 months, it'll be feeling better and I'll be able to get back to my routine.

On Friday I went to Provo for an eye appointment and saw lots of my old work friends, like Ashley and Pam and Megan, which is always fun. Then I met up with Janae, which to me felt like eating froyo with a celebrity, but she is really sweet and fun even though she is famous :)

Saturday was super busy - gym, Target, took Caesar to get a microchip, made sugar cookies, sushi, went to a BYU/Utah basketball game.

Sunday was mostly normal, except that the fire alarm went off at church twice and then the fire department showed up and it was pretty crazy. There wasn't really a fire. Oh, and my mom gave me this awesome bottle of essential oil Christmas spray that she made for me, and I put it in my purse and somehow it came unscrewed so now everything in my purse smells like Christmas.

Turkey Trot and my foot still hurts.

Well, the good news is that I ran a 5K Turkey Trot with my friend on Thanksgiving morning. The bad news is that my foot still really hurts, and it hurt more after that race than it has yet. So I'm going to make an appointment and try to figure out what's going on. The even worse news is that since I can't run, I'm turning into a crazy person who yells at their husband for no apparent reason. Not good.

Apparently something was pretty funny.

Anyway. Depending on what I find out from the doctor, I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can maybe run these virtual 5K's on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.... but if I can't run, I will definitely be biking a 5K on both days! Because at least I can still do that. And spinning is a pretty good running substitute, since it kicks my booty.
