Neuroma update: Today I finally got several cortisone shots in my left foot. The first shot didn't hurt. The next three went into the nerve between my 2nd and 3rd toes. That's quite a feeling! Like an electric shock combined with holding a lit bic to my toes. All this to avoid that same feeling while I'm running. I ran a hill workout today a couple hours after the shot. It will take an extended run to really know if the pain is gone for the time being. Last week I was able to get some good training in, despite the neuroma and the fact that my longest run was 10 miles. I've been having to stop every 1/2 hour or so and massage my foot in order to continue. Here's hoping these days are over and I've turned the corner on my comeback!
