Casualties of the PCT

The toenail casualty count was much higher than expected after the PCT50: 5 toes now sport gruesome empty beds (first two each foot, plus right 4th). I was thinking it was only going to be three. Longer race, bigger price, I guess. I am a bit disappointed because it is the first time I have lost toenails since getting a half size bigger shoe and wearing Drymax socks last December and I was kind of getting used to having ten toenails for once. I am in two weddings in the next month (with open toe shoes) and it is not going to be pretty! The girls' day pedicure appointment with my sister-in-law should be interesting, though.

On the bright side, my chances of losing toenails at Where's Waldo this weekend just went down fifty percent!

Did you know if you tape your toes as the new ones grow in they will look better? (Supposedly) (Yeah, I'm trying it on the couple nails casualty I have from the PCT) I learned that over at John Vonhof's blog. http://fixingyourfeet.com/blog/
