Plantar fasciitis

Irony maybe? I don’t know. You start a blog with “run” in the title because you are excited about spring and getting your butt out there to run and get in shape and boom, you are struck with the most horrible Plantar fasciitis episode ever.

Plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.

Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your very first steps in the morning. Once your foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position.

Plantar fasciitis is particularly common in runners. In addition, people who are overweight and those who wear shoes with inadequate support are at risk of plantar fasciitis.  – Mayo Clinic website

I can hardly walk much less run at the moment. So I guess, right now I am sew_knit_hobble.

Anyway, hello. I am Laura. Wife of one, mom of 3 (2 mine, 1 step), worker, sewist (sewer?), knitter, out of shape former runner who desperately wants to return to just being a runner. I don’t think I am particularly good at any of my descriptors but I do them and I love them. So I made this here blog to talk about it.  And really to talk about whatever. I intentionally made multiple topics because I tend to shift my focus periodically and randomly.
