Well, I hit 1,000 miles for 2016. The foot surgery really cut into my running. Not sure what I'll do this year. Neither of my feet feel like they can take a lot of running at this time.

I don't really have any running plans or goals at this time so far now I'm just going to try and maintain some conditioning until I decide what's next.

In Gatesville visiting my mom. Ran my usual out and back 10 mile run. It was pretty windy and cold.

Well...my foot, that I have had operated on twice, suddenly started getting very sharp pains in it for no reason. This happened all of a sudden this weekwnd.

I called rhe foot doctor and luckily got an appointment for today. After a little questioning and a fee ex rays, the doctor discovered that there is a strand of metal wire, left from the first surgery, still in my foot....So, next Thursday I go in for another surgery to have it removed..... Ahhhhhhg...!!!!!

Got the wire taken out of my foot today. The doctor (#1) says he thinks its a sliver of drill bit left over from doctor #1's operation. Doctor #1 did say he broke a drill bit off in my foot. Bottom line is, doctor #1 really botched the while thing and, l believe, caused me two years of pain, lost time and misery! Hopefully it's all over now and l can get back to running pain free.

Right now l don't have any running goals, I'm really focused on my team roping. My one goal that may pop up is Boston again if my daughter can qualify in April. I am already qualified so I don't plan on running any more marathons this spring.

My next goal may be 3:10 next spring but with my setbacks and age I'm not so sure that is possible .
