Me: You know what would be a fun addition to daily 15-mile walks?
Toes: Don’t say it.
Me: Replacing some of the miles with 13-mile runs!
Yeah, they’re angry. I don’t blame them.
Haha, I love how every summer there are at least five blogs dedicated to how much I’ve brutalized my feet.
Today’s walk was COLD and SNOWY and WINDY and I have TRANSFORMED INTO WRINKLEFOOT.
That is all.
Remember back in July when I posted that picture of my wonky toenail? A reminder:
Well, today it finally fell off. Kinda.
I was walking earlier and felt something in my sock. This is not unusual; I’m always adopting little rock friends in my socks as I walk.
But when I got home and took off my shoes and socks, HEY LOOK, A TOENAIL!
The black toenail from the above picture just kind of held on to my toe while another better toenail grew beneath it. The black part is what finally fell off in my sock. Still have the good part, though.
(It’s super soft)
(Sorry, this is super gross)
Walking 30 miles takes quite a bit of time.
It also beats the hell out of my feet. Ready to see?
My feet have the consistency of a pumice stone.
I might lose my toenail.
This is the bottom of my foot after walking in the rain for a few hours.
Sorry. I know it’s gross, but it’s what’s up with my life right now.
THE TIME FOR DISGUSTING FEET!
I have no freaking idea how my feet get so dirty. I mean, I get that I’m out walking for like 3+ hours, but it’s not like I’m walking on dusty paths. I’m on the sidewalks. Is Calgary really that dusty?
I won’t spam you with my nasty feets this summer, I promise.
I wear little ankle-high socks when I walk. That’s the only time I don’t mind short socks.
Anyway, I walked about 8 miles today and I had these nice little dust leggings by the time I got back home. I would have had to walk more than 20 miles to get the same dust build-up in Calgary.
Must be the dryness.
(Apologies for my gross legs; I didn’t have anything else to blog about today.)
(Also, I have the cankles of a god.)
