God does not want me to run the 2006 New York City Marathon

Distance: 4 miles
Weight: 164 lbs.
Stretches: yes
Sports drink: yes
Snack: yes
Time: 6.30am
Weather: quite cool

A hard lump has suddenly appeared on the inside of my right foot, something which could only be described as a bunion. It does not hurt, but its sudden appearance (I have been examining and taking care of my feet, believe me) in the past two days is alarming. It doesn't hurt, but it can't be good news. The websites suggest they are the result of constricting shoes, and lots of walking. We did a lot of walking on Monday at the zoo, but I was wearing good shoes, and my running shoes are not tight at all.

This just sucks.
