>Health and Nutrition>Black Toenails - Am I going to lose the nail?
My sweet new crank!
just lost two more this weekend at PF CHANG RNR MArathon.
If they do hurt, then a hot pin can poke a hole through the top to relieve some pressure and drain the fluid out.
The Greatest of All Time
I had two as well. It took a while for them to grow back nicely. They didn't fall off, but just new nails grew back and I trimmed the old black ones gradually. Shoes, mileage and my running form all contributed I think.
5k - 20:56 (09/12), 7k - 28:40 (11/12), 10k trial - 43:08 (03/13), 42:05 (05/13), FM - 3:09:28 (05/13), HM - 1:28:20 (05/14), Failed 10K trial - avg 6:10/mi for 4mi (29/08/14), FM - 3:03 (13/09/14)
My black toenail from six years ago has grown back.
I've had several black toenails but never lost any, just usually the new nail grew in on top.

"Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run." -Monte Davis
