Day by day I look in the mirror and think: "Well hello there Pat Kelly."  Am I the only one turning into their mom over here?

So, my mom was a beautiful lady so yay for me but there are a couple things that I could do without.  Say the extra chin and the bunions.

Yes bunions.  My 33yo rocking bod. . . . has pinkie bunions.  (aka tailors bunions). *

They are largely genetic and likely also helped along by years of taping my feet for dance.  Awesome blossom.

Why is this exciting right now for me?  Because I have STRESS FRACTURES in my BUNIONS.   Ok, so that is a medical generalizaion. . .  but still.  That's basically what is going on.

I bought some new shoes that apparently were not bunionette friendly and ran like 10-ish miles in said new shoes and now:  stress fractures.

I probably developed one through marathon training last fall** but the other one is straight up from the new shoes.

Now for the sheepish part-- I picked said new shoes because they were pretty and super light and comfortable.  and pretty. and bright. and pretty.*** 

Lessons learned.  

It's really not the end of the world-- they don't hurt if I wear supportive shoes and they said I can try more exercise in a couple weeks.  In the meantime, I am going to try swimming.
