Ever since my ultra trail race I have been working on losing my two big toenails. The first one decided to give up it's fight last week. This last remaining one is so barely hanging on that I need to keep it taped to avoid ripping it painfully off. I know this is a lesson learned in proper shoe sizing! I have injuried my toenails many times before but this damage was caused by excessive miles in shoes too big to keep my heel in the heel box. The extra room allowed my feet to slide forward and strike the front of the shoe. The extra room also created a "break" in the shoe right on the back edge of my toenail bed. I did not feel all this happening until very late in the race. Maybe the snow, ice and river crossing kept my feet a little frozen. Thank goodness for unknown blessing!
