Do as I say, not as I do.

You guys, it’s not that I think I’m above running law.  It’s just…idk, I sometimes think I’m smarter than everyone in the world. Do you ever get that sensation? No? Oh, me either…


So you know that whole rule of thumb, with running shoes right?

Buy your running shoes a half size to a full size larger than your dress shoe so that when your feet swell (and they will) you don’t get a sore toenail/lose a toenail.

Did I listen?  No.  Cause I’m smart and I know everything.  And then toward the end of last week, when my body started to get tired, the throbbing in my toe started.


I hobbled about, rubbing it when whenever I got the chance, but there’s no dodging it. Ya gotta follow the rules and buy the shoes in the right size. Your big toe will thank you. Those size 10s (yes, I’m 5’8″ and a size 10.5,) will have to hang out by their lonesome this week.

  1. Yea, I’m also 5’8 and a size 10, but I run in a size 11 and it’s the best feeling in the world. Sorry for your little piggies, but it sounds like you got the message loud and clear 🙂

      1. lol, I remember when my bestie, who’s also a runner, would tell me about her black toenails and how toenails would fall off….i just looked at her in horror and immediately suggested she go get herself fitted for a pair of running shoes (she never had). she’s been good ever since!
