As I was driving to work this morning, I listened to a new podcast, Running Ramblings. And I started wondering which non-running/fitness-related podcasts everyone else listens to. So -- chime in -- what are your favorite non-running shows? I now subscribe to 25 podcasts... some one which only update once in a blue moon. Only three are non-running related: This American Life, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me (which is hosted by a runner, in fact) and 2 Guys 1 Brain. If I only have time for one of these, I choose 2g1b -- hands down. Those two are hilarious.
The walking boot is my friend. I feel very "protected" while wearing it. Maybe it's just mental, but I have not felt any pain in my foot since getting it. I told my friend at work that I might wear it forever! Ha. And, after one anti-inflammatory pill, I swear my foot has gone down a bit. That is NOT mental -- the eyes do not lie. I attribute this to the boot, not the pill (surely one can't do magic just yet). The only downfall of the boot is that my left foot now gets tired when I have to stand for a long period of time, because I put all of my weight on it. And in the spirit of making lemonade... this boot is FAR FAR BETTER than crutches, in my opinion (from my memory of using them back in college).
I have to go to a fancy affair tomorrow night. I planned to forego the boot. I have decided I just might be bold and wear it! Of course, I'd have to answer all night long "What happened to your foot?" Ick. I will ponder this further.
And in another completely off-the-wall topic, I have finally figured out why I am growing out my hair with reckless abandon at this time.
