Ouchie-Wa-Wa!!

I went Running today...GO ME! It was just like any other day running except this happened!!! I KNOW! OUUUUUUUUUUUCH!!!

Those are BIG, FAT blisters on my feet! Gu-ROSS!!! I don't know what happened, I didn't do anything that i don't usually do! Same shoes, same kind of socks...i can't think of anything that would have made this nasty painful thing happen! I was running and it was going great, i was feelin good. But when i stopped to start my "cool down" walk home, my feet just started killing me so i was like "man, my feet hurt!" So i thought "well, they didn't hurt when i was running, so i'll run home so they don't hurt and that way i can get home faster so i can take my shoes off and rest my poor little feet." Well that wasn't such a good idea. They hurt even WORSE when i ran so i was like "ok i'll walk". Well, it was hurting so bad that i finally just took my shoes off and walked in my socks the rest of the way home. Pretty gross but at that point, i didn't care about it. The only thing that mattered to me was that my shoes were no longer rubbing the crap out of my feet! I finally got home and threw my body on the couch and took off my dirty socks and found those ugly, red, pus filled blisters on my poor feet! Right as i was leaving to go running, Jessica called and asked if i wanted to go to Target with her and i was like "Oh, i'm just about to go running. Maybe next time blah blah blah" and the whole time i was walking home i just kept thinking, "I should have gone to Target with Jessica! That would have been WAY more fun and i wouldn't have gotten these things!" Oh well, you live and you learn i guess. Next time someone asks me to go shopping with them, i'm DEFINATELY going instead of running! The rest of my body however, feels great from running so that's a plus i suppose!

Ok I'm dying laughing at that picture. Not at your pain, just at that picture.

I love you.

Sorry about your blisters---but--my main question is how did you get that photo!!I don't know how you can get such a cool pic of the back of your heals! I would have liked seeing you take that one!! hahaha.
Drain the blisters, then keep them clean and dry. You might need to get some "Mole Skin", but regular band-aids will probably work.
Love you!

OUCH! Blisters are the WORST! But, like your mom...right when I realized what the picture was, I was thinking- "I would really like to see her taking that picture"...unless Jarom took it I guess. Anyway- shopping over running? Very good idea. Good luck with healing. Love you!

I was so confused when I first saw that picture...are those knees, weird fingertips, and then finally my eyes got oriented and I said....OUCH! Those look brutal! Way to go on the running. That sounds so nice...I'm too pregnant to run right now and it's killing me, I miss it so much.

That is weird that you randomly got them....odd.

Oh man sistee! You're going to have to wear sandals for like a month, and no dressy shoes, ouchie! YOU POOR THING!!! Now Jarom is going to have to take extra even MORE special care of you :)
John says: Woah! Good Job!

Good Grief Girl! That is horrible, it hurts just to look at that. Your running days are over for awhile. I hope they feel better soon and that you take your time getting back into running.

love the ouchie wa wa title! But so sorry about your feet. I guess your feet don't like California, huh? Weird. Take it easy and don't work out, just shop.

Jill said...

P.S. LOVED hearing from you about your wedding day and honeymoon weekend! Great pictures. Have fun with your "wifely duties" you talked about. :)
