It was a two-speed that day -- first and fourth.

Worst part, it hurt for months.

But, I still prefer to be barefoot as much as possible, especially in the house.

Casey, I vividly remember the screams from my Mama when she broke her little toe just like that. Horrible!!!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I don't take off my shoes and my light colored carpet is paying the price. The reason? My running shoe bottom soles are made of rubber. They aren't "non-marking."

If anyone thought your mama was exaggerating, or being drama queen... NO!!!

I thought NFL football players with toe injuries were just milking the system... until I broke my toe.

Seriously, I've been taken to the hospital in and ambulance, immobilized by a back-board and neck brace after being unconscious for about 30 minutes. That was a bad day. Breaking my stinking pinkie-toe was WAY worse.
