What can you say about a toe? What can you say about this toe?
It's not pretty, that's for sure. That's because it's a runner's toe.
How can you tell?
Read back a few sentences.
"It's not pretty."
Runner's feet are not a thing of beauty.
A runner's style may be beautiful. His form may be downright perfect. He may hold the pace of a God on the long run, but his feet will never, ever be pretty.
Nice feet? Not a real runner.
Never had a black toenail or a hideous blister? How about a foot so blue from running in the cold that you were accused of being a corpse? Never happened to you?
Out with you, you fake, pretty footed pretender.
You're not a real runner, I say to you.
Show me an ugly foot and I will show you a beautiful runner.
Next week we will cover runner's ankle.
Run on, you grotesque footed adventurers, run on.
