So I finally gave into the pain in my foot.  The pain that has been a constant nag since I finished my Marathon almost 11 months ago.  Wow — has it really been THAT long?? Yea, it has.  So I finally dragged myself to see  the Foot Doctor this week.


It’s Official.  I have an inflamed Plantar Fasciitis which is a band of tendons that runs from the arch of my right foot, to the heel area.  It’s swollen from the impact of running on it, and it needs rest.  The Doctor was great.  He set me up with an x-ray, a cortisone shot, a night brace, a day strap, and custom orthotics (they arrive next week).

But here comes the bad news…….the L.E.M.O.N.S. so to speak —-> I have to rest it for 2 months.  No running.

SAY WHAT?!?!?!?



I have a Princess Half Marathon I’m supposed to be training for, and a princess-in-training (my daughter Erin)…who’s counting on me to run it with her.  On Her 17th Birthday!!!  No pressure , MOM!

What .







Well — like our strong, determined, loving Mom’s have taught us — When Life Gives you Lemons……It’s TIme To Make Some Kick@ss Lemonade!  Tune in tomorrow, for the recipe!

Ciao for now…..Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
