This was the foot’s (sans Wilson) first night out.
I wore some flipflops. I was thinking I was doing pretty good and looking semi-okay in a cocktail dress and beach shoes until I heard a woman’s voice: “Oh yeah, my shoes are horrible, I am so embarrassed. But I have a broken 5th metarsal toe right now, so it’s the best I could do.” Hearing “metatarsal” made me stop. I spun around to see this gorgeous, blonde woman in sky-high platform shoes. Oh, well. Fashion police arrest me. I’m taking care of this foot.
But then, I felt like a complete idiot, to worry about my shoes at an event benefiting heroic athletes who have experienced limb loss. Perspective is everywhere, and I am so thankful to know McBlessings and Getting2Tri.

The Expert and I head to New Orleans tomorrow. Sadly, not to compete. But excitedly to kick back, relax and cheer on Coach Monster and SBM friends, Robyn B. and Luke H. If anyone else will be down there, please let me know, so we can say “hi!” I am looking desperately for my beloved, yet missing, Race Parking sign…
Tonight, I am hitting a book party for Train Like a Mother hosted by the ladies who wrote the book, Dimity and Sarah…. I was invited to be Ilana Katz’, nutritionist extraordinaire, “date” for the evening. Yay!
