Hi! The LA Marathon is March 21st (I think). I have a few weeks left to train and a few 20+ mile runs planned. I don't know what is going on with my feet/ blisters. I got a blood blister on one foot…icky poo. I haven't tried body glide yet. I'll have to get some. I might wear my trail shoes for this long run and spend next week trying out new shoes.

I'm a little stressed about it at this point because even if I bought new shoes, I'd have to find time to run before Saturday or run the risk of running 20 miles in brand new shoes.

What to do, what to do..

Hi! I am SO glad that your marathon went well!!!! My 18 mile run was great, so my confidence is in a good place right now, except my NEW shoes are giving me major blisters. I have to get back in and try a new pair. That means I'll be running our 20 mile run on practically untested shoes :-(

I have been using moleskin and that is slowing the formation of blister, but do you have any suggestions?

Best,

Amy

Doing two or more marathons in the time required can be pretty taxing! I was hoping there would be another one I could do in December, but my schedule precludes it. I'll never be a double agent.

6 days until your marathon!!! How are you feeling???

I did 16 this weekend, but I don't feel so hot today. My hips are sore, which is new for me. A NEW part of my body hurts...imagine that.

Wishing you all the best!

Best,

Amy
