I have four cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I proudly run for the national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Walking to check on my kids Wed night, I didn't turn on the light in the hallway and ran into some furniture, toe first. Yes, it hurt.

Went to the doc Fri morning for an X-ray.

The yellow arrow is pointing to the bone that broke off my toe when I stubbed it. That chunk also happens to attach to the tendon that flexes the toe. Not something you want to run 2.5 million steps with at Grindstone 100 next week.

Anyways, I'm pretty bummed about this. I'm going to an Orthopedic specialist Monday morning, but I'm likely done running for at least a month or two, which means my racing season is over. Bummer. I was very excited for the next two races.

Stubbed my middle toe real bad last night- it's all swollen and purple today, very painful. No run. I'm just hoping it is stubbed and not broken. Figures this happen one week before my big 100 miler of the year.

Training all day at work and I'm sick. Snuck in 8 miles before going to Boy Scouts. Two night in a row of being gone from 7 am till 9:30 pm. Long days make for tired Jon. Plus I don't see my kids at all.
