Yeah, I’m talking to you!

All you runners out there, running around and running and stuff, I don’t like you. (Especially those of you who were out there yesterday during the three hours of 70-degree weather.) Yeah, I snarl when you pass me or perhaps I’ll stare meanly into your eyes as you approach.  But I’m sorry! I don’t mean it, I swear! It’s just that I have jealous tendencies and I get all “wanty” when I see runners cross my path while I am not right there running with them. I could have just run a 16 miler and if I see someone running on my way home, green envy boils up within me.  Now that I am injured and have not run one stride since Jan. 26, it’s horrendously worse…I feel I might snap. So runners beware! Of me!

So the injury: MRI results show what is most likely a bursa sac on the top of my foot near the 1st metatarsal, the the webbing.  Or, there is a random spot of fluid sitting on top of my foot, in between my toe bones that makes it slightly painful to walk and mega-ly painful to run.

Augh. Stupid foot. Stupid doctor.   I am currently waiting to see a specialist since my orthopedist is more of the general kind and would like some other doc, who is apparently more inclined to have a foot fetish, look at me.  That appointment is not for another two weeks.

I don’t know if I can last.

    Aw, sorry about your foot baby. I hope your foot gets better soon so you can get back out there soon!

    I am looking for virtual reality glasses that will simulate the running process for you.

    Double ouch! But fear not. I will employ my mighty voodoo powers on your behalf.

    That’s too bad! Being injured is no fun. Good luck getting it all taken care of and back to running!

    We should all get our feet replace with those cool flipper prosthetics that all the cripples already get to use. (Those lucky bastards)

    Seeing as how I’m extremely exercise-averse, I’m glad to know that I’m not one of the jerks in question.
