I did it!

I signed up for my first international race. I will be running the Munich Half Marathon the week after Oktoberfest ends. So it's finally time to dust off my running shoes and get my new Garmin ready to run. I'll keep you updated on my progress!

So, I've had an issue since before the New Year, where a spot on my heel has been a bit swollen, tender and had a dark spot. I went to the doctor and he said that it was just a scab and should heal on it's own. I kept using a ped egg to wear it down but it kept bothering me, sometimes a lot and sometimes I could ignore it. After walking around Luxembourg all day Saturday, it was really bothering me. I asked Brian to check it out and he said he didn't see anything. Well it really bothered me yesterday and I just rubbed my hand over it and it felt like there was something there. I grabbed some tweezers and just went after it. I pulled out what looks like a thin staple without the prongs. Thank goodness the Army makes dependents get tetanus shots. But since I removed the object my foot feels so much better and things that would normally hurt don't! So happy this is finally over and my foot is feeling much better!

Great Product

Sorry about the last post, I was kind of a Debbie Downer.

But I wanted to tell you about a great product I found. Sweaty Bands! Sweaty Bands They are great headbands that don't slip! They say that and they mean that! I wear these for Crossfit and when I clean around the house to keep the "whispies" at bay. I don't think I want to acknowledge how many I have but they are great! One of my favorites is the digital camo (pictured below). Sometimes they have special like a free band with a purchase, so sign up for the newsletter.

Btw- I was not paid or endorsed to write this review. This is a product I really believe it and wanted to share with all my readers!
