Steve, of Steve in a Speedo?! Gross is well known for his foot issues. He is equally well known for posting pictures of his battered feet. Since I very rarely get blisters, I had to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Steve and his blistered self.
It wasn't until we got back to the car and I switched to street shoes that I realized the blister was there. I have the distinct impression it was the result of old socks, my boots, and the uphill walks. I wore very poor socks to make sure my feet would get cold before the kids' feet. Normally, I wear much better hiking socks.
My plan for the day included a 40 minute run. I put my running shoes on, and decided it was a bad idea. I replaced it with a two hour ride on the trainer. Though the band-aid and the socks I wore to prevent further damage made my shoes pretty tight, I figured it was better to be on the trainer with the option to stop than out on the road if the blister started bothering me.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
