This is us running across the Dam at Hydes Park (I think that was the name of it)
Just shortly after the above picture was taken we saw a kid flying a kite
On our long run, something curious happened. My left foot went totally numb while I was running. It stayed numb for a mile or so and then curiously disappeared (the pain not my foot).
Last week was a great week, the first week I had run 40+ miles since the beginning of January. I typically have been running about 30 - 35 miles a week but wish I could run much more.
This week I got back to my 30-35 miles week. I would have done more but did not get a chance to get out on Monday and Tuesday. Most of my runs this week, I was running consistently at below a 8:00 pace and most of my pain issues have slipped away. On my long run yesterday along the river, the numb foot started up again. I looked online at a couple of places (here for an example) and they said that it is typically from a small shoe or overly tight laces. I do not feel like my laces are too tight and it only occurs in my left foot. I hope its not the shoes because I have fallen in love with my Mizuno Waveriders and they feel perfect on my feet. Since I had these shoes, my PF and shin issues have pretty much disappeared.
The Lincoln marathon is three weeks away. I am feeling pretty good about it. There are two things that I am looking forward to: One, the course is very flat compared to the Austin Marathon a couple of months ago.

Second, the Lincoln Track Club has tried to get the finish line to finish in the Huskers stadium since they started the marathon and finally was able to get it to occur this year.
And .... a video from Webb Pierce! Happy runnings.
