R.I.P. Little One


I lost a dear one tonight. It was unexpected and I thought we were in the clear.
But I knew. I knew deep down it couldn't have lasted forever.
The way her coloring got so dim and lifeless.
The way she seemed to have the life shrivel right out from under her.

So tonight...I looked at her long and hard and I said my goodbyes.
Rest peacefully, little one.
You fought a good fight and got me through 6 months of training and a strong 26.2 mile finish.
No matter who comes along after you, know that you were always my first and forever favorite.

P.S. To all you feet haters out there: This post must have been traumatizing for you. And for that, I apologize. You may close out and never look at this deformity again.

  3. OMG first of all I am SO sorry. Second of all I was worried about this THE ENTIRE RUN because my girlfriend told me that she ran a marathon in Hawaii and this happened to her because it was all downhill and so humid outside so the WHOLE time I was thinking (as my toes were hurting and rubbing on my shoe) oh god, I'm going to lose a nail.

  5. Holy Hell - I am terrified of feet. Traumatized does not even sum up how I feel.

    I do feel your pain though. I lost one of my big toe nails years ago. It took forever to grow back.

  9. It'll grow back, I think. I lose nails every few months or so. Just from wearing shoes, not from running marathons or anything! It's oddly therapeutic to help the nails along on their journey to death ;)

  13. Ugh. I feel your pain girl. I always lose a toenail or 3 when training. I hate it. Especially before or during summer when all I want to do is wear flip-flops. But at least "her" absence is a good reminder of the awesome accomplishment!

    BTW, your blog totally cracks me up. So glad I found it :)
