A Problem


Today I ran 8.3 miles. And it was the worst run ever. Seriously. I never knew 8 miles could so feel like death. For the entire hour+ I could think of nothing except being at home, drinking water and not running. 

When I finally got home, I took off my socks and shoes and poured myself a huge glass of water. Then I looked down at my feet and realized that I might have a blister problem. 

Apparently the middle toe on my left foot felt the need to split open in the middle and blister on both sides, officially making this the worst run ever, just in case I was debating about the winner of such a prestigious award.

I have not yet decided on a course of action (re: the blistered/split toe). Taping will probably be happening at some point. And new socks will have to be bought. I mean, that's totally gross, right? 

Any suggestions, runner friends?


  1. Well, it won't help the split toe problem, but using Glide definitely always works for me to prevent blisters...cheap and goes a long way!

  2. Sweet thanks! So can I just get that at any regular drugstore? Is it a foot cream, I assume?

  3. ooooouuuucchhhh!!!! yikes. sorry friend.
