I have five 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 used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- 6

PM- 7.  I planned on 10, but had to cut the run short due to foot pain.  I have had a pain under my arch for a few weeks that has annoyed me and caused a bit of pain.  I haven't done anything, and it hasn't gotten worse or better.  During today's run, it became painful enough that I started to limp a bit, then it became almost excruciating.  Hmm, better do something now.

do you have high arches?

I ran bear lake again and feel like I am going to throw up with a nasty headache. Does the extra 1400 feet cause that or am I just beat?

No, low arches.

1400 feet would not cause elevation sickness like that. It would take several thousand more feet than that. I would chalk it up to being beat.

Now I am afraid my vertigo problems, which can get very severe, are kicking in as these are the early signs (nausea, headache)- related to my hearing loss/autoimmune imbalance in my ears... usually from too much training, too much stress, not enough sleep- all of which I have right now. Hope it will smooth out...

take care of that arch!
