I'm back on the injury report. Life has a way of taking the outcomes you expect and flipping them upside down. I think it is a constant test to see how resilient an individual's sense of humor is. Wet flip-flops and a concrete flight of stairs do not go together well. 

I was so close. It was the final step before the landing when I slipped and drove my entire body's weight onto my right big toe. It is now black and blue and I have acquired a limp. Nothing is broken (I don't think) and I'm actually surprised I didn't twist my ankle. As temporarily pulverized as my toe is I think it could have been much worse.

The silver lining is that I have always anticipated something like this happening. Some unforeseeable events are out of our control and it is best to prepare for them even though they rarely ever surface. Fortunately, I've racked up a surplus of miles to anticipate this sort of thing. I'm not sure how long it will be until I can run again, I am hoping no more than a week, but I budgeted this potential loss into my balance before it even happened. Many people do this with money regarding their household incomes---some nations even do this with money for the good of their economy. America's government is not one of them.

So, I'm going to continue posting each day and eventually start running again. We're getting close to our one chance to fire Barack Obama. RasmussenReports currently has Romney leading considerably in the eleven swing states Obama won in 2008.
