What NOT TO DO on your next 1/2
Monday, February 18, 2013
Since I was out of State - I made sure that I had my road ID on my shoe for the St Petersburg 1/2. I did not see any difference in putting it on any particular way. ....big mistake!
Put the id on your shoe loosely and on the top laces - up near the openning! and with the metal part facing out!
I did not!
The metal of the id irritated the top of my foot so much that I limped my way through the last 3 miles. The top of my foot was in agony.... I did not realize what the issue was till long after the race was over. I had it on with the metal piece facing down on my foot and it was tight and low towards the toe.
It did not flex and it was situated where it needed to flex.
The race was over a week ago and it still is not a hundred percent AND I have the Hampton Half this week end! YIKES
