That's not my foot (or lack of) by the way...
I was all motivated with my new socks. I ran further than my usual landmark! I even finished my first mile in under 15 minutes. I've been hitting 15 minute miles because 1) I can't run for a full mile yet and 2) I walk to catch my breath, not keep my heart rate up.
