Sometimes I get back from a run and feel like I've been in a war zone...
I forgot to include in my Saturday Long Run post that I bled all over two pair of shoes. After about two miles, I noticed that my middle toe on my right foot was hurting. The pain was coming from the next toe (well the toe nail). I tried to re adjust my foot, but the pain was still there.
I changed shoes and socks after my running group finished their run and didn't notice that my foot was bleeding. When I finished my last eight miles I looked down and saw the blood all over my right shoe!
When I got home and put both pair of shoes on the porch to dry I saw that both right foot shoes were bloody. I checked out my foot, but only found a small cut. How does that much blood come from such a small cut?
Anyway, I cleaned up my shoes and put a band aid on my toe and went on with my day. Yesterday, I ran the bridge and noticed that my band aid had fallen off and the pain was back. I couldn't believe it, my foot was bleeding again! I cleaned it up and put a band aid back on and it seemed fine during my next two runs.
Well... I feel better now that I shared that with everyone...
