Losing my first toenail

 

losing a toenail

If you don’t care to read about gross things then you might want to move on. If you’re reading this during your lunch break you also might want to move on.  If you’re a runner, triathlete, or think this is interesting then read on.  I’m supposed to blog week 6 of Kona World Championship training and my Nation’s Triathlon race report but this seems like a quicker topic to blog today.

A few weeks ago I had a little trouble with my second to last toe on my right foot. I thought it was going to be my first toenail to fall off but phew, it was saved.  But then yesterday it happened.  I lost my second toenail on my right foot. You know, the one next to my big toe.  It was never black before it fell off like people say they are. It had been hanging there completely detached from the nail bed, like a lose tooth ready for the tooth fairy. Please tell me this is as big of a deal as losing your first tooth and please tell me there’s something like the tooth fairy out there. You know…like a Toenail Fairy?  Am I going to get some kind of prize or cash like I did when I was a kid losing my teeth or do I just earn some lame “badge of honor” for losing the first toenail?  I can’t believe it’s taken three Ironman to lose my first toe nail.  Why is this just happening now and does this finally make me an official runner? Melissa and Kristen both tell me it does. Fortunately for you I only sent those two ladies the before and after photo. All you can see is the tiny before thumbnail…no pun intended. Anyways, losing a toenail is mostly funny to me although pretty ugly for a girl.  I’ve got 9 pink polished toes and one toe completely naked.  Maybe I’ll just polish right over and hope it blends in…
