I have had the great good fortune of being sponsored with Drymax socks for about a year now. Wonderful socks. No blisters ever. The only down side is that darn things last forever, so the socks I got about a year ago are grayish because I’m a haphazard laundry sorter, but they’re still perfectly serviceable. The dryer eats one every now and again, so I’m hopeful I should be able to request some bright, new, shiny ones before 2012. Anyway, I was told Lisa Bliss and Jamie Donaldson started the tradition of taking pictures of their feet after races to send to Drymax to show how well the socks had treated them. I’ve wanted to send a post-race thank you picture for a long while, but my tradition has been to vomit after races instead. I’ve never had my wits around me — or a friend with a camera — to take a blister-free picture. Until Rocky this year.
Um, so pedicure anyone? I’m hoping a relative who-shall-not-be-named will be inspired to send a gift certificate. We’ll see. Eliot’s comment was, “Well, there’ll be no questions about photo-shopping.”
Hope you’re all having a good morning and your toes look lovely today.
PS. Eliot thought I should point out that that’s the remnant of toenail polish on my big toes.
