Bummed

Remember how I had these big plans to run the full marathon this year? How I read books and made plans and signed up to run for St. Jude? How I dusted off the treadmill in my bedroom and told everyone my plan so I would be held accountable?

Weeellll, my foot had other plans. After going to the doctor yesterday because the swelling in my foot still hasn't gone down, I was told that the full isn't going to happen this year. And for that, I am super sad.

It is either severely sprained or broken (I will get the results today), both of which will require me to stay off of it for several weeks. If it is a sprain (fingers crossed!!), I will need therapy and if it is a break, I will be wearing a boot. Not your best summer fashion accesory- that is for sure.

Photo via, text via my awesome Paint skills. You're welcome.
(I am thanking the good Lord I won't have to wear what is on the other foot. White high socks and nurses shoes? No thank you.)

Needless to say, I am heart broken. Plus with the no running and all the eating I've been doing, these pants are getting tight too. Double heart break. (Although, I can control the eating haha).

I am going to try and drop down for the half in hopes I can still raise the money and run a race. After all, the important part is raising money for the kids!

In other news - I had a phone interview yesterday that went well and I have an in person interview on Friday! This job would be about thirty minutes from Stuart and is right up my ally in terms of what I want to start my career doing. The lady who interviewed me is so incredibly sweet and we got along so well. Any prayers or good juju would be wonderful!


Can we say rollercoaster of emotions day? Ha!

Have a great Wednesday! And go on a run for me, would ya?

Lovin' the boot.. maybe if you have to wear one you could even mod podge some cute design onto it. At least it would be cuter to look at...
