i thought my foot was better, but he actually wasnt. i had to drop out of todays half marathon in phoenix park at mile 4.

the test early in the morning was fine. i had no problems during a 40 minutes warm up run. later on, in the race, i felt it pretty early that the soreness wasnt out of my left sole. the pain came back. i dont want to risk my marathon so i didnt really think long and dropped out.

now i have to wait and see. still taking antibiotics and now, 4 hours after the race, the foot feels better. we will see how fast im up to normal.

racing flats and tarmac wasnt the combination for me today.

as always thanks to darren from racepix365 for the nice pics on his website. the picture is taken just shortly after the start.
