What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

To My Friends With Plantar Fasciitis


If you are a suffer of Plantar Fasciitis, you might want to take a moment and read this. When I broke my foot a couple of years ago, after being in 'the boot', I started having problems with the beginning of planter fasciitis. And for most runners, the mere mention of the word can strike fear. So I immediately began doing stretches and strengthening exercises.

As most of you know, a tennis ball, golf ball or frozen water bottle seem to be the device of choice to use on the arch area of your foot. My tool of choice was a golf ball. It seemed to get to the area better than the tennis ball or water bottle. But after coming across the Oh Ball, I do believe that I will be retiring my golf ball.

The Oh Ball looks like this





And one thing that I really love about it is the handles. An issue I had with the golf ball (or other tools) was that as I would apply pressure, the ball would slip out or move off of the 'spot' that I was trying to work on. With the handles, I can keep the pressure exactly where I need it.

The Oh Ball is made out of maple wood which I have been told is one of the best anti microbial surfaces available. This little device has now become one of my daily staples, especially now that I'm back to training.

So if suffer, or like me, would like to keep from suffering from plantar fasciitis, I encourage you to check out the Oh Ball. I'm glad that I did!

  2. You're right the handles are pretty useful, it's such a hassle when the golf balls slip.

  4. First time seeing this Oh Ball, people usually use tennis and golf ball. What I like in this ball are the handles that makes it easy to use, and its made of maple wood. the best treatment for me is that, I get some shoes for plantar fasciitis with some features like cushioning and arch support.
