how did that happen? is it going to keep you from running?

bigger bummer. which toe? and what part?

Not sure if you can read this. Stubbed it on something coming down from the picnic table to the tracks at tempo pace. Almost did a face plant which would have been really ugly. Was able to run the rest of the way to Lone Elk no prob even though I was pretty sure it was broken. It hurts, but it's not interfering with walking as I supinate terribly. I'm going to lay off running for a little longer and then give it a shot. Meanwhile, I'll train on the bike which doesn't seem to be a problem.

Also, on the Tunnel Hill front, I may still show up, I just won't run it competitively. My thought is to run to the first turn with John Cash (who will probably be laying down sub-7's) and then just lollygag on the way back in and call it a day at 26. That would be a decent workout without wrecking my training schedule and I'd still get to talk to a lot of folks on the easy part.

good thing you can run. like you once said, any day it could be over. unless you get over it somehow.

Tunnel Hill -- cool.

Toe - any chance it's soft-tissue damage vs broken? (not sure which is worse, s-t can take a long time to heal).

I'm pretty sure it's broke, but I can't rule out a nasty sprain. Either way, the treatment is "let it get better" so I'm not going to pay $500 to have it x-rayed and find out for sure.

It's really not that big of a deal. It hurts a bit, especially if you poke at it, but walking and biking are fine. I'm just being conservative on the running because there's no reason to be otherwise.

conservative is good. those sorts of things tend to be rock/root magnets...
