There are few things in this world I enjoy more than running marathons. Call me crazy, but that distance is perfect for me. Humans are designed to run long distances, after all, so technically I am only leaning into my own biology. Nowadays, few people run marathons on a regular basis. Most of the time, even people who compete only run a few dozen kilometres throughout the week to get themselves in shape. But I’m different. I’m better. I run a marathon every single weekend. And it’s fast, too. I bet I could even beat the world record if I tried hard enough. The only thing that’s stopping me is my feet. I have multiple foot pains and problems at the moment.
First and foremost is athlete’s foot, which is this gross fungal infection of the skin. I’ve looked it up online, and I seem to have it due to the amount of time I spend in runners every single day. Will that stop me from wearing running shoes? No, of course not. I’m not going to give up my favourite activity simply because of a little foot problem. I’ll just buy some cream and keep moving. Nothing will stop me.
Actually, one thing will stop me: the pain in my foot. I have no idea where it’s coming from or what has caused it, but I know it’s in the muscle and is completely unrelated to the whole athlete’s foot thing. I’m planning to buy some orthotics inserts. Cheltenham has a number of podiatrists around the area, and I’m sure any of them would be honoured to help me (since I am such an accomplished runner).
Once I check the prices, I may even decide to go to a specialist podiatrist who deals specifically with people who run a lot. I know they have a number of secret tips and remedies that could potentially help somebody who runs as much as I do.
