now a little more catching up.................... after the 3 day walk, i ended up with tendonitis of my flexor tendons of my right ankle. i guess 60 miles will do that to you. the good news is that it was not a stress fracture! i did go see an orthopedist and he did put me in a walking boot. meh.
vibram boy and i had another mud run obstacle course to do!!! i don't have time for this tendonitis. dr. ortho said to wear the boot "about a week." i was an extra good patient and wore the boot for 2 weeks. then, on the saturday that marked 2 weeks from the 3 day walk, i ran in a 5k obstacle course race..........probably not what dr. ortho would have recommended. but, all is well.................. we ran the warrior dash in austin, nov. 20.
we actually had a team of 7...... brother in law / sister in law, cousins, friends, etc. we had "team awesome" t-shirts. vibram boy and his brother had done the caveman crawl in october, but the rest of the team had never done an obstacle run before. we had fun!! everyone agreed that they would do another obstacle run!
to top off the weekend, we all camped together too! nothing like sleeping in tents before and after a 5 k obstacle run........ it really was awesome. i haven't camped in years! this is now my public statement that vibram boy and i will be camping again!!! soon!!! i will even go as far to say that it will be one of my new year's resolutions!!!
vibram boy did a lot of planning and delegating......... we had delicious food....... breakfast on saturday was breakfast burritos............eggs, beans and cheese. we had a late lunch at the warrior dash...... turkey legs. bratwurst. beer. dinner was super de.lish chili....... made by vibram boy himself. breakfast on sunday was eggs and sweet potato hashbrowns! of course, s'mores. mmmmmm.....
and just hung out by the camp fire.
