Confession: I’ve never had a blister let alone lost a toenail from running.

Unless I’m meeting up with someone for a run, I really am most successful when I run in the morning. Ok, I’ll be honest, it won’t happen otherwise.  I just like running first thing in the morning, not after a long day or work…or even a relaxing day at home.  Does that make me less of a runner? I don’t think so…right?

So this morning I had to start work early and as it is, I had to get up at 5:30am, so throwing in a decent workout would have meant getting up before 5am and that’s just inhumane.  So my “plan” (of which I have had many) is to run after I get home tonight, after I walk the dog and feed her…so, I’ll let you know what actually happens…lol!

Today on twitter (@50statecanuck) I saw this link posted: These are the Ugliest Runners’ Feet you have ever seen and seriously, they are.  I don’t have a weak stomach, but I couldn’t even look at all of these they are so gross.  And maybe it’s because, knock on wood, that despite having run 13 marathons and 10 half marathons, I’m not sure I’ve even had a blister on my feet.  I know, don’t hate me. I have no idea why, I just have been lucky…and after seeing those pics, I realize JUST how lucky – UGH!!!

Do you get blisters?
