The woes of a runner's feet

I'm not a foot person.  I don't like touching other people's feet, unless your names rhymes with Schmissy.  I don't like people touching me with their feet.  I think feet, in general are gross.  Disgusting.

But dancer's and runner's have the grossest feet of all.

Remember when I got this:





Today it looked like this:





And not to mention this little problem:
That's my toe minus the nail.  Yup.  No nail at all.  Totally screws up a nice polish job.

You can't win as a runner.  Your toes and feet will always have something jacked up about them, but I will pimp out my favorite foot product of all.

This:


I swear by it.  And while it won't cure my blisters or keep my toenails from falling off - it does keep my tootsie's nice and soft.  No gross looking cracked out heels for this girl.

*sigh*   Running or a perfect polish job?  I'll take running any time.

I totaly use the same stuff! Granite I got it in my stocking one year from my hubby. "Whatcha sayin baby?" But it really works. One time after a pedi, my heels split and after two applications....wahla! No more pain! A few days later, no more splits!

Sick to the nast, but I would take your legs over blister-free feet any day.

Where can I find this miracle product?

Yeah,Touching feet is about the grossest thing there is in the world… I used to have to massage my dad's feet when I was a kid and I only got paid $.50 an hour… talk about a total rip off!

If you get better soon and may you run until you get more blisters. That is, if you like that sort of thing.

That toe is AWFUL looking. Kinda makes me shudder.
Thanks for the foot cream review. I'm always in the market for a winner.
Hate icky feet.

Um, chiquita? EWWWW. You poor thing. Meanwhile, thanks for the heads up on the foot repair. I need me some of that... Hope your blister finishes doing whatever it's doing and you get a new nail soon!!

I still have gross feet from my years of being a dancer. I should probably get some of this.
