when i'm out walking i strut my stuff...

So, I got these two little blisters on the tips of my second toes on Saturday. I've never had blisters there... They were a little sensitive, but no big deal.

That is, until I went snowboarding on Sunday. By the time I got my boots off at the end of the day, the toenail on my left foot was turning purple.. and the toenail on my right was threatening to pop off because the blister had grown so large underneath it.


I've done a little self-surgery... lanced the blisters and drained them (ew, gross!) and soaked them in an epsom salts bath. Sigh. Such a relief!

I am optimistic that I will achieve a full recovery. Hopefully before next Saturday's long run.


  1. A couple of years ago I broke my little toe on my right foot and today, it's started hurting again. Not badly but I'm aware of it in a way that you're not supposed to be aware of body parts. But blisters are the worst :s

  2. i fractured the joint where my big toes meets my foot when i was 14, and it bothers me more and more every year... so i feel your pain, sister!

    but, my poor little tootsies feel much better since i burst their bubbles.
