So with the forced down time upon me, my girl and I decided to have a mini mani/pedi party last night after WW. Imagine my complete shock and surprise at seeing my bruised toe! Apparently this happened during my half-marathon 2 weeks ago! My foot was a little sore after the run - but so was everything else, so I didn't really think to take off my nail polish and check my toes. I was a bit horrified at first, then grossed out. Now, it's a badge of honor! LOL

I know my shoes fit correctly - this is a product of the wrong socks and a long-ish toenail. I'm going to experiment to fit the right socks and make sure I have a pedi BEFORE my next half-marathon :)

Hope that toes gets better so you can hit the road again...I can just imagine how frustrated you are feeling....never mind I did an extra 20 mins of running for you today!!!!!! ;)

After I ran the Disney half I had the worst blisters on both of my feet. I found the Smart wool socks at my running store and won't use anything else when I race. Since wearing them I have not had any foot problems.

Darn right it's a badge of honor!! I would post a pic of my feet, but then I'd have to kill ya! Naw, I've lost two nails, have another two that are on the verge and have decided to opt out of toenail polish until my feet r healed - if that ever happens! I've also gotten 1/2 size larger shoe ... apparently that was the culprit in my case ; ) Seems to have helped thus far. Here's to healing toes of HONOR!!!
