Runner's Feet

I’ve always had gross feet and toe nails from running. I know all of you fellow runners reading this can relate. But lately I’ve taken it to a whole new level! I think I have all possible phases of a toe nails’ life on my left foot alone:  healthy, injured/about to fall off, re-growing, and freshly fallen off. Pretty impressive, huh?

Fortunately my toe nails, or the recent snow, haven't really affected my running. I got out to Green Mountain in Lakewood this past Friday for some hill training. There was about a foot of fresh snow which made for a fun hill workout. After 12 hill repeats up I had a pretty nice trench.

On a side note, I’m really liking the new Pearl Izumi Syncrofuel shoes. I loved the upper of the old version, but the outsole was more like a road/hybrid trail shoe. Luckily the new version addressed this problem with a move aggressive tread pattern. Adding some Kahtoola micro spikes also added some extra traction in the snow.
