Broken Toe Update

Readers of this blog have put up with the saga of my broken toe and attempts to get back to running over many months.  And there is — at last — good news!

I had a second surgery to remove the screw that was placed in my toe in November of 2013, fourteen months after the original injury. Here’s a picture of that nasty old screw — much bigger than I thought it was!

2013-11-15 13.35.13 After a few weeks to heal, I was able to gradually start back to walking and then to running and the difference was immediately noticeable.  I’ve been doing physical therapy and massaging my foot to break up the scar tissue and can finally run again without pain!

And the GREAT news is that after training for two months, I ran in the San Francisco Half Marathon last weekend!  Details in the next blog…
