Triumph!

B. and I did our first race today, and it was awesome. It was only two miles, which was a nice distance for the first time out. I ended up running about 0.3 mph/faster than I normally go. That may have been because of the excitement of running with other people, or it may have been because I feared hypothermia, given that I was severely underdressed for our freakishly cold weather (mid-30s and snow on the ground after weeks of 60s & 70s). I'm looking for a 5K to do next.

What happened to you foot problems when you go running?

So far, I've managed to go foot-problem free through a combination of running on soft surfaces (spongy tracks, treadmills), special insoles, and padded running socks. But if I'm wearing a big black boot with my wedding dress, it means that system failed.
