Lipstick on my Piggies

I don't like feet. I don't have a really good reason, they've just never been my favorite body part. They're clammy and weird-looking and usually unattractive. One of the not-so-pleasant side effects of running long distances is the punishment that 4 hours of pounding pavement gives your feet. I hear horror stories all the time about discolored toes and missing toenails. Thankfully, I've been able to avoid the grossest of the foot issues, getting off lightly with a few callouses and rough spots. Until now. I'm 99% sure that I'm about to be down one toenail thanks to yesterday's superb finish. I think it's an even trade. I keep my toes camouflaged with dark polish, but I think it's a losing battle. Oh well. Full recap still to come. Not in three parts this time.

  1. How long for the toenails to grow back?
    I heard that putting Vaseline between your toes before the race is good method of reducing the rubbing.
