The Dangers of Trail Running

Yesterday when I went trail running I tripped on two rocks. Thankfully, I was able to catch my balance before I hit the ground. After the run I noticed a little pain in one of my toes but I thought nothing of it, UNTIL this morning. I woke up three hours before my alarm went off because of the pain. I thought I might have sprained my toe but when I looked at it, I realized it was just my toenail, that was half off and about to fall apart. Yuck! I cut the toe nail off and now the pain is nearly gone. I decided to skip my morning run and I am hoping the pain will be completely gone for my run tonight.

*Sorry for the details but this is a running blog, so anything related to running is "fair game" right? :)

hey, if we can blog about pooping in the bushes on a long run, then running injuries are a given.

hope the toe feels better by tonight!

Must have been something in the air! I had a pretty nasty fall myself :-) Glad you're doing okay, despite the ripped toenail! And take it easy this weekend in the heat...it's going to be toasty!

Yes you aren't truly a runner unless your missing a toenail or two :) I can't wait to start losing mine again.

And the worst part about it all is that you had to wake up early to boot!
