Okay, I’ve read about this till I’m blue in the face. Some even refer to the black toe nails runners get to their “badge of honor.” It’s not mine. I am going on my 11 mile run tomorrow and this is what I’m running in – with socks of course.
I know, I know…I hear you saying that I will pick up everything from rocks to whatever in those open shoes. Who knows though I may have created the next Vibram. Also, think how hot your feet get during a run. I know mine get so hot the polish comes off of my toes. Maybe this will help that too. Who would have thought that shoe would go over so big. Also, women runners want to preserve their toes appearance so they can wear sandals and such without explaining that the black toe nail is not a fungus but instead is a bruise. I may regret making the cut, but I have several tennis shoes and will still use them no matter what.

Just remember, you can always say you knew me when…Ha!
