5 mile race with a fractured ankle

On 7/27/14 I rolled my ankle on an easy run on the bridal path in Central Park. I heard a crack and it turns out that I fractured my ankle. Doctor ordered 6 weeks in a boot, 5 weeks no pressure and 1 week walking in a boot and then see the doctor again. 

8/10/14 -The nyrr cleared me to race on this scooter and I did an 8:30 per mile pace at an avg hr of 137. Most importantly I got some exercise!  After my injury, I had to go on blood thinners again to keep blood clots away (got 2 last year) and this plus no exercise caused a flare up of my Crohn's. Once I started exercising the flare up went away. 

The inury is devastating to me. I'm scheduled to do Ironman Lake Tahoe on 9/21/14. 

Here's a picture of me after the race.

    says that you should look after your feet in all seasons. Since your feet carry the weight of your body, chances are any problem with the feet can lead to discomfort and pain in no time.
