New Face Series…

Found some time and here is the first in a series that I mentioned the other day. This topic started a year or two ago. Jenny is always calling me a freak when it comes to running because I enjoy it so much and will do it in any weather or place. One day we started an email chain with my running buddies called, “You might be a running freak if…”

Here is the first.


I used to get a black toe after every marathon and usually once while training. I consider it a badge of honor, a souvenir. I even congratulate people when they experience their first. “Congratulations, my son, for now you are a runner!”

I changed my shoes and I don’t get my black toenail anymore.

I almost miss it…

Are you a running freak? Do you know one?

Do you have any good ones? Any you’d like to see here?

    Running freak. No black toenails yet. Although- bloody socks and shoes are common around here. Finally figured out that the seams of the shoe were causing me to get extra blisters and bleeding…Need bigger shoes.

    The need for bigger shoes was my problem, too. I didn’t know the “go a 1/2 size up” rule until I was properly fitted for running shoes.

    Enjoy your site. Good luck with your training and meeting your goals for this year.
