problems by the foot

Well, it looks as though I won't be hiking out to Yangpyeong. Something's going on with my right foot, which doesn't hurt too much once I get walking, but which hurts whenever I'm resting. This could be a problem with my shoes which, although I feel as if I'd just bought them, are about nine months old, now, and—as I just discovered tonight—pretty worn down:

That's the result of hundreds and hundreds of kilometers walked since last August (including quite a few km racked up in France last October). Look more closely at one of the soles, and you'll see I've begun wearing through the outer rubber layer to the inner layer:

So as unbelievable as it seems, I think I'm going to have to order another pair of shoes. Meanwhile, I'll walk shorter distances to try to minimize the foot pain.
