Your go-to running shoes have begun to show signs of wear, and you are thinking about hitting the athletes' store to get yourself a new pair. Before you proceed, it is essential to know that the kind of shoes you select doesn't just affect your running capabilities; they can also protect you from or expose you to foot problems. Wearing the wrong shoes will hurt your feet and cause problems such as heel pain, shin splints, blisters, corns and ingrown toenails.
If you are like me, you have probably been in embarrassed in the past about having thick, yellow or otherwise unsightly toenails. You may have even suffered pain from your toenails. Those statements used to describe me, but with the help of my family and podiatrist, my toenails have returned to a strong, clear and beautiful state. The journey wasn't always easy, and it forced me to ask a lot of questions and do a lot of research. As a result, I learned everything you can find in these blog posts. I see other people with painful looking toenails on the street, and I want to help them with some pointers, but walking up to strangers – however well intentioned – is a bit beyond my comfort levels so I decided to create this blog. I hope it helps and entertains you!
