    • at least they’re battle wounds that won’t scar! i didn’t even realize i’d gotten them until later in the day! … did i just admit to not showering post-race? :) hehe

  1. Good for you! Half Marathon, quite a feat! And ouch those blisters look radical! Hope they don;t hurt as bad as they look 😦
    But as someone else mentioned, they make great battle scars! (Why is it that we all think that’s cool, lol?)

    • we, healthy living bloggers, are a strange bunch! i’d be much more impressed with running blisters than a beautiful pedicure! 🙂
