During my 18-mile run this weekend, I noticed a strange bright color soaked into the tip of my shoe. Did I kick some juicy red berries?
When I got done running and took my shoe off, i discovered that my sock was soaked with blood.
I never did feel pain from it, but apparently a toenail was prised up from the repetitive impact of running.
The pain I DID feel hit when I got into the shower.
Sweat salt running off into chafe wounds – aaaughhhh!
Ever since I exceeded about 3 hours out on the course (recall, I am a slower runner), my clothing has started eating through my skin. Last run, I tried using some anti-chafe chamois butter to prevent the problem, but no dice.
Hoping I can find a way around this newest trouble!
Ah, marathon training . . .
