Hand cut carbon fiber

It's interesting that I would start my first blog about my running experiences after missing a race and wearing a boot with 2 stress fractures in my 2nd and 3rd metatarsals. Maybe it's because you need to lose something before you truly appreciate what it means to you.

The orthopedic guy at Rush told me I could get out of this Stormtrooper-esque Aircast boot this weekend. I had to go to an orthodics guy and he was going to cut me a custom piece of carbon fiber to put in my shoe. I am pleased that the next 3 weeks will be spent limping in a shoe instead of a boot but I couldn't help thinking that it was excessive for the guy to hand cut carbon fiber. Couldn't he just have given me a size 9? Just checked the mail - still hasn't come.
