<p>is this meant to be or a really baaaaaaaaaaad idea?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>bwahahahaa</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>seriously, though, a local running friend just messaged me on FB letting me know about this one ... and I am hoping to try out a few hour run on Sat before work ...</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>if it weren't for the reason it's called 'broken toes' = fairly technical and that it's over 2 hours away and I have to be back home to work by 2 or so I might just be crazy enough to try this ... or maybe I still am that crazy  ...</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>what size straighjacket do you think I need for even toying with this?</p>

<p><span style="font-family:arial;color:#000000;font-size:10pt;">I say do it!  What do you have to lose, a stupid toe nail.  What is a little technical running among friends anyways?  Besides you can consider this race a training race for when you run MMT or Grindstone if it makes you feel better.</span></p>

<p>I did a 55 miler last Sunday with a broken big toe (although a very minor fracture, which is now 3 weeks old). My podiatrist suggested I "let pain be my guide" - I did and the toe was fine.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If you are smart enough to call it a day if it starts hurting, I would say go for it.**</p>

<p>Heh.</p>
<p>I looked at this earlier this week. If it were closer to me, I'd do it... despite my (or to spite my) mangled toes. </p>
<p>(BTW - I managed to whack the bejeebus out of that poor left big toe again this morning - on a sidewalk, of all things <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" title="">)</p>

<p>I will decide for sure tonight, after I hear back from the friend that suggested it ... but really, I was hoping for 20-25 miles tomorrow before work and with the drive time required to get to the race I wouldn't have time to fit in any extra milage even if my poor pinky is willing to be submitted to more abuse, haha ...</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>it is quite funny that this one came to my attention the week I broke my toe, ha.</p>

dang ... it's sort of like that for me on the trails when I'm thinking I need to be extra careful not to "X" that's about the time I mess up something else  ... focus needs to be on several things all at once on the trails, not just protective mode for one body part, haha ..<br>
