Broken in Boston

Did you know I fractured my calcaneous (heel bone) during the Boston Marathon? Well, I might have done it during my training, not really sure. What I do know, after getting a bone scan last week, is that there is a lovely stress fracture on my right foot. Ahhh! A reason for my misery. I have had(and still deal with) Plantar Fascitiis, but that is something I have had in both feet and have managed that discomfort the past few years. This was a bigger mess and most painful. It didn't go away after NOT running for 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 5 weeks...the orthopedic says it might be 4-8 more weeks (even up to 6 months) before I can run again. So for the last month I have been swimming, spinning and the ever boring eliptical machine. I long for the day I can run and run and run....

Anyone out there have any sympathy for me?
