Let me be clear: It's not okay to honk at a woman while she's running, or walking, or sitting by the side of the road smoking a cigarette. It's not okay to drive up next to her, as if you're about to kidnap her, and tell her she's a real gem.
Every runner's experience and treatment is different. What worked for me was finding the right expert, whose treatment corrected my gait, healed my PF, and made me an improved runner. Don't let plantar fasciitis keep you off course and from your next marathon or ultra!
To the extent that we are mirrored, encouraged and acknowledged for our achievements and our creative pursuits, we are unified within ourselves. To the degree that we are perceived through a distorted mirror, we are torn asunder and may search for approval at a cost to our real self and creativity.
