He walked everywhere

Walk in Walt's Disneyland Footsteps tour sign
Yesterday, February 24, 2020.

He walked everywhere.

Who?

Walt, of course.

We walked “in his Disneyland” footsteps yesterday, for three hours.

Time to return to running?

Exquisite cake from the world-famous Grand Floridian bakery. It’s been two years (?) since i’ve eaten cake. In a perfect world, i’ll never eat cake again. Eat about five apples a day though, so it balances out.

Time to return to running?

Well, if ever there was a good time to restart:

  • After a three year “foot-rest”
  • Cheryl makes her own work schedule now
  • An Olympic year
  • Why not?

Grateful for the pain

Disney Keynote Speaker
i love being an entrepreneur. A crazy misfit. An outlier. A dreamer. And so on. Grateful for all the struggles. It means i’m moving forward on a big dream.

No pain jogging yesterday.

It’s insane how long i’ve lived with nagging foot pain.

Grateful for the pain though.

There are others who have no feet and they would give anything to have sore feet.

No pain, go gain

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
At Disney, or anywhere greatness is abundant.

No pain, go gain.

The 30-day break from running has morphed into 2-3 years. i never wrote the date down because it wasn’t supposed to be a significant gap.

Continuous foot pain. At any moment. For any reason. Its cause never uncovered. So all i could do was move on.

The biking and walking to the gym have been my cardio supplements without running.

And then we returned from a family trip to Glacier National Park.

We began running one-mailbox-a-day a few days later on August 6, 2018. This is a significant date because all three of us began together – with a dream of lifetime fitness.

Our run this morning was about 1.25 miles at a slow pace. But we are out the door long before the sun is up. That is a miracle, a blessing.

For weeks now, i haven’t detected a hint of pain.

You must pick your pain

tough runner's planks
Revisiting this photo from a couple days ago. Why? Planks can be difficult. Not having good core strength is difficult too. Pick one.

 

You must pick your pain.

Text conversation with a former Disney Institute colleague.

Recommended my Podiatrist to him.

He’s visited Dr. Curtis Wagner.

Making progress.

Mark asked me yesterday, “How long did it take for the pain to go away?”

“Two years, or more.”

Then i said, “Get the night boots and the custom orthotic inserts.”

He has trouble sleeping with the boots.

Who doesn’t?

Totally unnatural to wear boots to bed, night after night, year after year.

Hey, i get it.

Been there done that.

Is the hassle (pain) of night boots worse than the pain (hassle) of every step of your waking life?
