I Got Shot(s)!

Of tequila?
Of a highly sought-after paparazzi-loving celebrity?

Not quite.  More like the painful ones.  The kind with a needle. *ugh*

These shots aren't supposed to get me sick or anything, better yet, they are supposed to help me.  Before my very first half marathon in November of '09, I got two cortisone shots in my feet.  One on each.  Boy, they sucked, but they did WONDERS for my foot pain from the stupid neuromas.  Well, over a year later, I needed some new shots.  The burning sensation in my feet during my long runs with Mel and Amy put me over the edge...I needed relief again.  So yesterday I went to my awesome podiatrist and got shots.  Didn't run last night because my feet were still numb from the anesthetic, and I was going to run today, but I realized that both feet still hurt a little...well they're bruised from the needles. Icky.
See the bruises?  Ew. 
I feel bad for not running tonight, and I really really REALLY want to, but Goober is keeping me busy with her fussiness too.  Tomorrow's a brand new day.  (Ha ha!  Just like that lovely jingle from the Valtrex commercials!  "It's a brand new day!").

Anyway, I'm still putting together everyone's pics from the LOVE YOUrself Valentine Challenge...they are all AMAZING, by the way.  Also, stay tuned for a little interview recap with the ambitious Dan McKenna who's going to Conquer Atacama for cancer research.  Woot!


  1. I know exactly what that feels like and...OUCH!

  2. I've considered getting cortisone shots but I'm a chicken... especially since I've heard they hurt like hell and sometimes don't work!

    I hope they help you and that its not from plantar fasciitis.

  3. ye-owe-zers!!! I hate shots! And on the top of your feet?! Ouch! I hope you feel better soon!

  6. OUCH! That looks like a horrible place to get a shot. :( Hope it helps!

  7. Boy do I know those shots. But all of mine have been in my left foot! I had a total of 2 for a neuroma about a 1.5 years ago and just 2 or so weeks ago I had one under my arch by my heel for plantar facisitis - that one REALLY HURT! But I can run now.

  8. Wow! I have had some pain in my feet, but no shots yet. Hope it works!
