Damage…

Blisters, I started feeling the first blister form on by little toe around 23km’s, the others I didn’t really feel although, I had a sneaky suspicion there would be more than just the one…

While I was waiting for my mom at our club tent at the finish, I decided to take my shoes off and assess the damage, I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw what my feet looked like…

The underside of both my little toes, both big toes, between my toes and on the side of my foot were blisters that I felt needed their own blog post…

I thought I’d attach a picture I took AFTER I’d stuck a needle into the blisters to relieve some of the pressure, although I still think I got off pretty lightly as far as injuries go – my mom is losing 8 of her 10 toenails…

    Hi Ryan, thanks for the comment.
    About my feet being orange, well my brain was a bit mushy at the time so I didn’t adjust the flash when I was taking the shot. My train of thought was something along the lines of must.take.picture.then.find.bed – actually at that moment if someone had told me I WAS related to the Oros man I would have probably believed them…

    Nice! – OK so now i am motivated for my first comrades. having just found your blog recently i am catching up on some of your old news over a quiet lunch – esp with regards your first comrades in 08.
    Why are your feet orange? Are you related to the Oros man?
