My training for the Comrades have started and things are going very well. I am however very worried about my left foot. I am officially 32 but have the left foot of a 87-year-old woman. So I went ahead and cut a hole where my bunion is. The girl at the running shop actually laughed at me and looked at me as if I was crazy when I suggested this plan but I went ahead any way. It was a bit difficult to cut a hole in a perfectly new shoe that cost over R1 000.00 but it had to be done! I will report back regarding the success of this shoe mutilation.
