I know you all thought I was a drama queen about my toe trauma from my race last weekend. Don't even say you haven't been thinking about my toe, and that you skimmed over that paragraph in my race report because the report was too long to begin with and you read ten million blogs and it was enough info already.
I'm hear to tell you that that damn toe has given me issues since Saturday. It even took me to the doctor. I usually don't go to the doctor unless it's girl time - "scootch to the end of the table, this is going to feel a little bit cold, here is some pressure," and all that (ugh and when did they start doing that rectal exam? That was quite a surprise at my last physical). But my toe was throbbing and worst of all I couldn't run. After two days of no running I was ugly to be around and I contemplated a new habit that would not wreak havoc with my feet, legs, glutes, hams, toenails - like meth or crack. Neither of which is good for family life.
So - to the doc I went (BTW, this is where the giveaway comes in so hang in there). She looked at me sideways,"You idiot you came here for that? I have people with raging STDs, people with the swine flu, people with ingrown hairs and you come to me with a bruised big toe? Well, waahh waahh," she said as she pretended to play a violin. Well, she wasn't really that harsh, but you know that's what she was thinking. What she really said was, "It's not infected. Run if you want. You're going to lose that nail. It could take six months or you could soak it and it will fall off more quickly."
I'm going to soak the crap out of that baby. That's right, and...wait for it...I am going to give away my toenail to one lucky reader. All you have to do is to leave a comment about what you would do with my toenail if you got it. Some of you might want it for a special locket, others might want to add it to their Superbowl crock pot of chili. As a bonus, I will even paint it the OPI color of your choice: Cha-ching Cherry, Tangerini Bikini or Pink-ing of You. It's up to you, but the most creative comment wins.
Here's a confession: I am a giveaway wannabe. I don't know where you guys get all this cool schwag you give away. I have nothing to offer. Nothing. So I give you the toenail.
