I did the Disney Marathon a few weeks ago and my big toes (and feet for that matter) were very sore afterwards. My question comes to toenails, and losing them. the toenail on my left big toes was very bad, and I believe it will likely fall off. the top quarter has already disconnected, and the pain has finally lessened to the point that it does not bother me. The catch is I had a great pedicure done before the race in the event that I blackened a few, and I do not want to remove the polish to see the yuck that lurks beneath (at least not for another week and a half since I will be wearing and open toed shoe at a formal event.)
What are the odds that it will not fall off, but simply grown out? If it were going to fall off would it have done so by now? Should I be concerned or just let nature do what natuer will do. All I have been doing thus far is soaking it nightly and keeping it clean and dry.
Thanks all! Despite having been a runner for a number years and now two marathons this is my first toenail issue. And preemptively, it was not the result of a poorly fitted shoe, but a 'new' running sock I tried for the first time at the marathon. (dumb choice made at 3 am dressing for the race.
