Possible TMI. Not for people who don’t like feet.
I felt the nail of my second biggest toe on my left foot get caught on my sock/shoe and bend backwards. It hurt for a few paces but not enough to stop running and I finished the race in a good time. Looking at my toenail afterwards there was a line in the nail where it had bent backwards and it was starting to bruise.
I went for a 8.5 mile run this morning and knew that it would be worse today. I took my sock off after the run and it was bruised all over.
After two half marathons and countless 10ks I get my first black toenail during a 5k?!
