If you're reading this it means you got past the title. Urk.

Anyhoo, I enjoy the ezine "Fixing Your Feet" by Jon Vonhof. He's lately had a series titled "Embarrassed by Your Feet?" which caught the attention of the ex-NYT fitness editor-turned reporter.

Nope, I would never.

It always amazes me when I ramp up my miles how my 2nd toe nail "lifts up" and then becomes "gnarly" toenail and then last year one fell off. It has taken me since the begging of the year to have yet normal again 2nd toe nails. I begin my serious marathon training in goal to keep them cut short and maybe make it without too much gnarly-ness and keep them!

I am all about the nicely manicured, short, neat and polished toes!

You need this book. I can't say enough about it. This and Andy Pruitt's cycling medicine books are my bibles.

And give up pedicures? Never.
