“Pain is a bad deal! No more heels!” Say it with me. “Pain is a bad deal! No more heels!” “Pain is a bad deal! No more heels!”
“Say no to blisters that pop! Wear flip flops!” I can’t hear you! “Say no to blisters that pop! Wear flip flops!”
With just 24 days left until THE marathon, I am not taking any chances. I quit wearing heels to work or out at night, a couple of weeks ago and have pledged not to put them back on my feet until after Bethtober 17th. I wear either flats or flip flops to work most days and am very grateful to work for a company that realizes that it is more important what comes out of my mouth and brain than what is worn on my feet. Outfit choices for work can be a bit challenging some days though as a number of my “work pants” have been tailored specifically for 3-4 inch heels but it’s a small sacrifice for the greater goal! I do have some pretty cute pairs of shoes that I miss. Is it wrong that I still want to shop for new ones even though I’m not wearing them?!
Additionally, I realized a week or two ago that I can’t get anymore pedicures until after THE marathon. I have cut back on this luxury significantly within the last year or two anyways but the last time I went, they scrubbed off all of my calluses! Hey, I worked hard for those! And then I had to endure another round of blistering and callusing. No thank you very much!
