    I have insane pain in my left

    I have insane pain in my left wrist. It's been going on for just under a year now. Sometimes I think it is ready to break, and if it would, at least it would get it over with and start to heal stronger. Could this be arthritis?

      TJ, the wrist could be

    TJ, the wrist could be arthritis, there are about 100 different kinds. If it has hurt for that long it is probably time to see a rheumatologist, they deal with all kinds of arthritis.

    Most of the shoes are far too cute to donate :) As long as the dress they go with fits........ LOL

    Does arthritis in the wrist

    Does arthritis in the wrist normally feel that bad though, I mean like a bone is ready to snap? I tried to pick my almost 4 year old up the other day, and just the normal weight applied to my wrist to do so for anyone else would not have been a big deal, but this pain was so intense, I thought for a moment that I had broken my wrist.

    I know I'm new at this, but I

    I know I'm new at this, but I was wondering why I hadn't gotten ANY comments on my bare feet! Well, duh...it was because I usually run early in the morning. I don't see many people, and those I do see are probably too sleepy to comment! ;) I ran tonight, and not only had a good conversation about BF running with a neighbor who saw me on my warm-up walk; but also got asked twice, "Where are your shoes?" (My answer, of course--"At home.")

    Ah, finally, I'm part of The Club. ;) Now I'm just waiting for a rude comment!!

    I don't usually get any rude comments, just comments from interested parties. Some will make jokes and being the nice guy that I am I joke back ;) When I joke back it usually opens into a good conversation. The only hateful encounter I had was at a Kroger's grocery store. It was un-related to running, but I was barefoot. I went in there after a run, and they booted me out like a criminal and threatened me with police when I was trying to reason with them. You would have thought I was the barefoot bandit and I came to rob them lol! I was like wtf it's just barefeet freakazoid! The manager was like it's against health code, and I knew better and told him he was a liar. It's only required by employees not customers. Then the glass issue came up. As if the earth is covered with glass or something, I get so sick of hearing the glass drama! But, I just left and emailed a complaint to customer service. Other than that, no major problems, just jokes about it.

     Does three little Korean

    Does three little Korean ladies sitting on the curb, pointing at my feet and laughing out loud, count :) ?? The Koreans seem to find barefoot running terribly funny, even the gate guards were laughing, but they just asked my name.



    TJ, yes, arthritis in a wrist can feel like that. I can't even hold up a coffee cup when it gets bad. Just to give you a framework for RA, for it to be rheumatoid arthritis it has to occur in both large and small joints, symetrical left to right, both above and below the waist, and pain lasting more than 3 months. Also %30 of people are NOT possitive on the blood work. I'd go see a doc, one injection of cortical steroids will take care of that wrist pain within a day or two.

    You'd think I'd be used to

    You'd think I'd be used to needles by now. I'm not afraid of them. I just can't see going through anymore of that at this point though. It probably wouldn't work anyway, since NOTHING works on me. I'll, of course, keep your suggestion in mind. Thanks for that.

    So that's funny. You're the town loon there too. Ha. Should be used to it by now. Send pictures soon.

     Compared to what you have

    Compared to what you have gone through, an inter joint injection in your wrist would be nothing, it really doesn't hurt like it sounds.

    I've seen two other people in VFFs so far, need to get some cards made soon! Are we ever going public?

    Cameron is building a test

    Cameron is building a test site, a backup site. So once he has the maps fixed and that done, we will launch even with the minor boo-boos we have.

    BTW, glad you and yours made it to Korea okay.

    I got laughed at this morning

    I got laughed at this morning by fitness walkers!

    I ran past them, and one said in a snarky tone, "Well, will ya look at that?" and the other started laughing. I turned around, put the most "hurt" voice on that I could, and said, "Did you really just laugh at me?" The one that didn't laugh said, "No! No! I didn't!" And the other lady turned red and said, "I'm sorry."


    Jerks. Not cool to laugh at people while they are exercising.

    A lady driving past me slowly

    A lady driving past me slowly on her golf cart (golf cart community) with her preteen son, yelled to me AFTER she passed me, "Get some shoes!" I stopped dead in my tracks, turned around, as she looked back at me, and I yelled back at her, "EXCUSE ME!" She says in a much sweeter voice, "I mean, you should get some shoes." I guess my reaction was enough to slap her out of her uppity attitude. (I guess that's what you did there with those ladies too, Silly, slapped them out of their uppity attitude.) I just wasn't in the mood that day, and you guys know how I am about being nice to even the nastiest naysayers, but if she had stopped her golf cart and her kid wasn't with her, I would have had it out with her.

    On the July 4th weekend last year I was running on the bike path and due to the holiday there was a lot more recreational folks out there. An older gentlemen on a Bike yelled out to me. "Barefoot...what does that feel like?". Without thinking, I responded "It's awkward at first but then it's a lot of fun". I had passed him at that point but he yelled out one last retort of "I was asking about being barefoot not sex".

    Best comment I ever got, running past a little family farm stand, mom dad and kids all sitting in their John Deere tractor just enjoying the evening. One of the kids was obviously special needs, as I approached I heard him saying "mom he's barefoot"... so i slowed and stopped. He asked why and I said because it feels good. He looked at mom and said "I think I'll try barefoot." They said sure,so he kicked his shoes off. Then he said I looked tired and offered me a free apple. Nice family.Was a delicious apple too.

    Part of my running route takes me past the town square, which can get pretty busy around lunch time. I'm sure there are people who say things about me, but I usually can't hear due to my headphones. There was a guy the other day outside of one restaurant who I believe said something about not catching cold I think. Ironically he was outside for a smoke (way more harm to his health than BF is to mine). I should have said back "don't get lung cancer".
