I did 13 miles on Saturday and didn't wear my "good" socks (Bal Ga is my brand). That was a mistake. I got a small blister on the end of my baby toe. Yesterday I was going to do 7 or 8, but ended up doing 10. Small blister turned into big blister. Ow. I opened it last night but kept the top skin on (as per my running book's info about blisters that won't stop hurting) and it's better today. But I want it to go away.
Other than the discomfort factor with blisters that are healing (I just got over another one in a different place), blisters are preventing me from having pretty feet. It seems stupid to get a pedicure with an open wound on your foot, so I've stayed away from the nail salon. But it's summertime and I want my toes to look good. And without the help of the nail salon, this runner's feet are not a pretty picture -- literally!
