I’ve had a nagging heel injury all year and after the Chicago Marathon, I thought it might be best to just totally rest it. And then I did a couple of races and then I told myself I was going to really rest my feet for a few months at least. Maybe get in a bunch of swims. That was three weeks ago and I was really missing running, so I signed up two days ahead of time for the Evanston Flying Turkey 5K. It felt really right to start off the coldest Chicago Thanksgiving in 60 years with a quick little run up around the Northwestern campus.
