Got Toenails?

My friend told me about a shirt that she saw that said, "Got Toenails?" and she thought of me!! I don't know if I should be flattered that she thought of me or embarrassed about my toenails. I know no offense was intended so I'll take the flattery; heck maybe I'll even buy me one of those t-shirts!!!!! Yes I have all 10 toenails BUT they aren't exactly the most beautiful nails in the world. One of them is horribly afflicted and another {despite my meticulous clipping} loves to dig into it's neighboring toe, so unless I tape it up really good you can bet I'll have bloody socks after every run!

Like today, we went on an AWESOME 5 miler. It was just cold enough to make you want to keep moving. We have quite a little running group now and it is so much fun to run and train together. Anyway, we pushed it hard: 45:57. And it felt GREAT! So back to the toe, I look down at my shoe and I could see a red hue to my shoe right where that blessed toe is. GREAT!

UGH! I really just need to go to Costco & buy a great big huge box of band-aids!!! That or dig out the duct tape and use it again. Now that I think of it, duct tape worked great. Scratch that mega box from Costco, I'm pulling out the duct tape!!!

Please tell me I'm not the only one with toe woes!

I am not embarrassed by your toenails. I just feel bad you have to deal with it. I also just know it is something you have struggled with. Thus you coming to my mind when I saw the shirt. Good luck don't forget duct tape next week 9 miles will kill you if you are bleeding.
