It's nice to know that whenever I read about someone's toe nails following off I can google "toe nail necklace" and this great post comes up. I shared it millions of times. Ok, maybe dozens.

It isn't just people who run long distances who loose toenails - although I *used* to be a runner, even as a committed pedestrian (I don't drive), I have on occasion, lost a toenail after a "long" walk.

What happens to a necklace dangling from a rearview mirror of a car when the car travels at a constant speed?

This is so crazy! I live on the beach and see some pretty crazy homemade creations such as crocodile and shark tooth necklaces but this tops them all! Made me laugh but at the same time kind of disgusting. haha. Love reading your posts!

2010-06-23T17:51:20.017-07:00

Wow, that is one of the more disgusting things I've seen... But they are definitely something that has been worked hard for so should be worn with pride!

What a cool idea, it somehow takes your mind off the fact that you will lose a toenail, experience excruciating pain and have ugly feet! I'm listening to my client and she has a desire for distance running and a fear of losing nails. Maybe she will find some humor in this, Thanks!

Slighty interesting, slightly gross. I have lost a couple of nails myself but nothing to this level.

Cheers

That is disgusting...the toenail necklace...and completely hilarious. Obviously one of those things only runners would ever consider.

OMG...I'm scared now...LOL...the big toe on my right foot is hurting and is slightly discolored at the base. I think I'll get those INJINJI socks!!!
Do they come in PINK????...LOL

2007-07-26T20:01:00.000-07:00

Hi Scott - a friend directed me to your page about the toenail necklace - it has received a lot of attention!! - in answer to couple of the comments on your blog - I lose the toenail days or sometimes weeks after an ultra in which a toenail has blackened from the pounding against the toebox of my shoes - I lost all 10 toenails after running Badwater a few years back !! - its not particularly painful during the race or afterwards - the black ones just loosen up and I pull em off - there is a great photo of me removing one of my Badwater toenails with a pair of needle nose pliers on our SLUG (St. Louis Ultrarunners Group) website - check it out at www.stlouisultrarunnersgroup.net - oh and by the way - at times I may seriously consider killing myself about 80 miles into a 100 but no I'm not transforming into a serial killer !! - best regards - Jan

Thanks for stopping by, everyone! I haven't asked Jan about how he loses so many toenails, but I will say it happens quite often in running 50, 62, and 100 miles. For me it just feels like swelling in the toes (often caused by blood blisters under the nails, ie, black toenails), then suddenly there's this little extra friend in your socks when you take them off. Mine tend not to come off during the race, but a few days later. Often in the swimming pool, much to the disgust of my lane mates who jump out like they saw a floating doody (eg, Caddyshack).

The consensus on the cause is generally a combination of swelling of the feet and downhill running when your legs are tired. Completely avoidable with some focus.

I should note that since switching to the Injinji socks (which have a sleeve for each toe) and making sure I'm not "braking" while running downhill, I haven't lost any toenails. Certainly not enough to make jewelry... ;-P

Did you guys see Scott's post today about the bike accident? Freaky, scary, emotional - I can't stop thinking about it.

2007-06-04T19:13:00.000-07:00

Mmm, so is this a painful process? Or more of a "Hey where did it go? Oh THERE it is" experience. A surprise? Or is anyone running that much so pumped up on endorphins they don't notice.

Or is it something that happens after damage, a few days later, or, by surgical means?

2007-06-04T16:27:00.000-07:00

I am so glad to see your blog. Because I lost my first toenail after my 7th marathon in April - it was my big toenail. When I told my family and friends that I was going to drill a hole in the toenail, paint it red and wear it to my next marathon (Marine Corp Marathon) in October they all thought that was disgusting and crazy. Now I can forward your blog to all of them as a proof that there are others out there that are more disgusting and crazier than I am. Thanks.

Didn't the US troops in 'Nam used to have necklaces made of ears?

This is kinda sick.

2007-06-04T10:27:00.000-07:00

That is just plain unusual. It isn't just people who run long distances who loose toenails - although I *used* to be a runner, even as a committed pedestrian (I don't drive), I have on occasion, lost a toenail after a "long" walk.
