So I guess Mary was right. Going for a 20+ mile run in brand new sneakers may have been a bad idea. I earned a number of small blisters and one large blister alongside my big toe. Then, two days later, I earned a dreaded blister under my toenail. Even after my impromptu in-my-office surgery with a dirty push-pin it continued to throb like crazy. It required about 5 operations before the pain decreased.
I wonder how my run will go today or if I will be sidelined by a stupid blister?
