|Anna & Sue at Mile 3|
The first 8 mile practice (the race is 13.1 miles but who cares) was not exactly pleasant for me and my feet were a burning. Not good to have sore feet. Well, I went to Movin Shoes and they advised me to get NON cotton socks (I had been wearing double cotton socks) and it seemed to have done the trick that is for the next 8 mile practice on Jan 15th.

Today is the first day after the first half marathon of my life. I feel great so I guess it was good. My left foot started burning again at 8 miles so I stopped and changed my socks on three occasions to get through the end and it really helped. I owe the "bring extra non-cotton socks" idea to the walking.about.com website.
