Forums: Connect with Another Mother Runner

A huge, sweaty welcome to the another mother runner forums, an exclusive but inclusive—that makes sense, right?—place to connect, chat, ask, analyze, and dream big with other runners. The beauty of this running forum is that, unlike our Facebook page, the status updates don’t float by in less than a day. Here they are, accessible whenever you need the 411.

Anything is game here: questions about training, nutrition, sports bras, leaking on the run, whatever. Two categories we think are pretty cool: a match.com for mother runners, where you can find a BRF (best running friend) and free gear swap, a place to find a home for your newish gear you never use. (The recipient pays only for shipping; thank you in advance for respecting this rule.)

So whatever you've got—IT band problems; stroller questions; a picture-perfect race; shoe issues—lay it on the collective us. If you'd like to nominate a category we forgot, email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com. We're all here to push each other across the finish line again and again.

Post Foot hurts. Race is in 9 days. What to do?

What would you do if it was 9 days before your half-marathon and the bottom outside edge of your left foot hurt when you walked on it (and has for days)? (Basically, the outside edge opposite the arch in my foot.) Would you rest and wait a few more days to see if it went away? Go see a doctor? Something else? (I'm not a running newbie and yet I've never had pain in my foot like this!)

It I didn't have the half-marathon coming up fast, I might wait it out for a few days. As it is, I would try to see a doctor asap. It could be a stress fracture. Hopefully, you will get good news and be able to complete the race with a few days rest but you really need to know for sure. If there is swelling put your foot in a bucket of ice water for 20 minutes (add the ice after you add your foot). I hope it turns out to be nothing and you can run. Please keep us posted either way.

Soak in hot water with epsom salt for 15-20 minutes, take motrin.
