Paul entered a contest through 2Toms (OK, I entered it for him) - the "Worst Blister Challenge"... as soon as I saw it I knew he could win! If he gets the most votes, he wins 1 SportShield roll-on 1.5ounce, 1 ButtShield roll-on 1.5ounce,1 BlisterShield 8 ounce, 1 BlisterShield 32 ounce, 1 StinkFree Shoe Spray bottle, 1 48-count SportShield towelettes, 1 48-count BlisterShield Trial Size, 1 10 pak Stink Free Sports Detergent Packettes, 1 Stink Free Sports Detergent 30 oz Bottle - whew!
I'll leave the blister picture on their website - but if you want to see the magnificence and vote for Paul's toe, please head on over there!
Speaking of blisters, I have been told I need to become an expert on fixing blisters, since I'm Paul's crew for the SD100. One of Paul's pacers (keithski) suggested the book "Fixing Your Feet" - so I have it on hold at the library - I'll be interested to see all that's in there.
In the meantime, I googled a bit and found the blister care section on the Badwater website - if anyone knows about blisters, it's the people involved with the Badwater race! I found out a lot just by reading this page, plus the two referenced at the bottom of the page. I guess I need to put together a good blister kit before June!
Any advice on dealing with painful blisters during races???
