Blisters are just the appetiser…

Blisters are just the appetiser…

One of the things that has always daunted me about the race was my being flat footed because that often results in weaker knees. Endurance races are, supposedly, a no-no for people like me. So the question is, will my knees be able to take 7 days of intensive runs up sand dunes and across squishy soft sand? The mind is strong but will the body be willing? So I finally paid a visit to a podiatrist, the sublime Mr. Leong, and got a pair of insoles for flat footed ducks like myself :)

The doctor did warn me that if there was strenuous activity before I’d fully adapted to those insoles I could develop blisters. Well, what can I say? I’ve developed the mother of all blisters this past weekend but at least the 12 km run is done! Hoping to take this up to 16 km the coming weekend. Vamos!
