So yesterday I got to see an actual sports medicine doctor who was absolutely awesome. Bar none the best visit I've ever had with a health care professional. He totally seemed to know what he was talking about, he spent a lot of time with me, looked at my x-rays, watched me walk and his diagnosis: My foot is probably not broken, it's more likely a "stress incident" than a "stress fracture" -- there may be microscopic breaks in the interior of my leg bone that are the cause of the swelling. He knew when my race was without me having to tell him and said we can come up with a recovery schedule that allows me to run it and train for it. I've got an MRI scheduled week after next and I'm going back for a followup in two weeks. I can walk on my foot, though if it give me much pain, I can get a walking boot from his office.
Writing North Dakota stuff today and prepping for my trip to Arizona next week.
That's all the news from lake Woebegon.
