Well, it's 2 days before our big weekend of races, so of course there's a little drama. Damn it.
WARNING! GROSS FOOT PHOTOS AHEAD!
About 6 weeks ago, I had a sore spot on my toe. I looked closely, and I found a HANDFUL of plantar warts on the end of 2 toes on my right foot, along with 2 on the bottom of my foot. I hadn't had any plantar warts for YEARS, and suddenly I had a crop of them.
I treated them with the the "freeze" stuff. In the past when I've had a few on the bottom of my foot, I've used the "pads," but there was no room for the pads at the end of my toes.
I re-treated them nearly 2 weeks ago, thinking that would give them plenty of time to heal up before the races this weekend. About a week ago, they were still achy, and they looked like this:
Two blistered treated plantar warts.
Ouch. In my office after my class.
The view from above. There's another sore on the right side of my 2nd toe
that faces the visible wound. They rub together when I walk. Awesome.
That whole white area is peeling away from my toes. Yuck.
Alright, time to race this weekend. Keep an eye on my twitter page all weekend long for updates. Here are some related posts:
