Good on ya. I walked it for the first time this year, and had a blast. I hope to run past you next year...

You've come a long way, sometimes it's ok to be the hero in your own narrative.


Thanks. And listen, buddy: You really ought to set your sights higher than passing me.


Congrats on the bridge run - and, well, everything else, like happiness and health and quiet knees.


So ... how did you get Plantar Fasciitis in the first place? *readies note-taking pencil*


It happened over time, and it came from being an active person who didn't stretch properly or regularly. I didn't know what it was when it started, so I didn't treat it. It got worse, and I didn't deal with it for years, until it was probably pretty severe.

Ever since Eli Manning got it it's been getting some media attention. Joakin Noah is missing months of the NBA season from it. And the thing is, I see people walking and standing a certain way now, and I can tell they have it and don't know it. So I've been able to help at least one guy get better.

If you have sharp stabbing pain in your heels (particularly in the morning), you have it. You need to do at least two particular stretches twice a day, ice your heels afterward, take ibuprofen, and stay off your feet as much as possible for a while.
