Necessity is the Mother of Inspiration...Or Something Like That
A few months ago I was running, took a wrong step, and caused a whole host of old and new problems to flare up in my right ankle, which has resulted in multiple doctor visits, physical therapy, and an MRI. And the result of the last visit was the revelation that I actually had a stress fracture in my right ankle - which actually I was happy to know that I had a legitimate problem with my ankle, instead of it just being nothing, because it makes all of this "taking care of myself" nonsense worth it.
BUT part of the diagnosis requires the wearing of an ankle brace and sneakers for the next three weeks. Which is better than being put in a boot, which I talked the doctor out of, but still - its kind of a sartorial nightmare. Especially when I have been on hiatus for a while - to now be limited in this way - SUPER annoying.
So be prepared to see these bright blue sneaks for a while. It is a pain in the neck (or ankle) to try to come up with outfits around them, but you got to do what you've got to do when you are trying to take care of yourself. Even if that means wearing an ankle brace and sneakers.
