>General Running>2 Toms "Worst Blister Challenge"
Needs more cowbell!
Funny. I've never really had any super bad blisters (or black or missing toenails--I seem to be an anomaly among runners). Surely we can get a RA winner in this contest, though!

Not A Runner
I don't have any good pics of mine (DB has seen them up close though). I did see a great pic this week when looking at race reports from my newest obsession, the Grand Union Canal Race.

Oh, gawd...those are nasty! I just showed my kid and he said "ewww...I almost lost my dinner!"
That was 120 miles in to the race. The guy still had to run 25 more miles with those bad boys.
Ow, I can't even imagine that. Did he pop them before finishing the race?
It doesn't sound like it. I always think I should pop them, then it ends up hurting more than if I would have left them alone.
Here is his report. He sounds like he was a pain in the ass to crew for.
Wow...I simply cannot wrap my mind around running that far...running for 30 hours. Does not compute.
I think it's funny that he doesn't like corn. The Brits put that shit on everything, including pizza. I don't really like corn, either. Corn on a sandwich...ick. I laughed at the deep fried sausage, though. They were deep-frying everything in the UK before our state fairs caught on to the trend. I never had a fried Mars bar, but my DH was kind of addicted to those when he was in Scotland for a year.
