[B] is for Blisters

B   Blisters. They are almost inevitable. When I started running they were just a mild inconvenience as I never ran long enough for them to be a problem but as the kilometres started piling up they can turn into a real unpleasant issue.

After my first marathon, I lost four toe nails. After my second, I didn’t even get a blister.

The difference was properly fitted trainers. If you thinking about running a marathon, get an assessment in the sport shop where they will recommend the right shoes for you. Trust me, it is worth it.

    The idea of losing toe nails makes me cringe. I walk in flip flops…then have foot and hip pain. Unlike a wise you, I keep making the mistake. I need to just get proper walking shoes and stop being a goof.

    D: FOUR toenails?! How far did you run? T_T My toenails are small to begin with, and my feet are duck-shaped… now you’ve got me worried! 😛
