In the course of the office visit, or "store" visit, Pete and Marty started talking about my Afton 50K race the day before. This led to a discussion of my enormous heel blister and its strange appearance.
Pete assured her that this was in fact not the first blister that I have had since running in Brooks Cascadias. Pete told Marty, with astonishing detail, that I actually had a blister last summer. Having so much intimate knowledge about me, Marty related that she felt like she was talking to my wife.
A good running partner is hard to find, but like my great wife, they're indispensable.
Child #3 is fine.
