Runner’s feet.

by heirtoblair on May 15, 2012

For Mother’s Day, Doug gave me an entire morning at a spa, complete with massage & pedicure.  Like, the most insane pedicure I’ve ever experienced in my life, complete with hot stone massage.

This fantastic lady is pretty-fying my feet & she’s all, “Do you run?”

I’m thinking, is she drunk?

I say, “Only if there’s a Krispy Kreme in front of me.”

& she’s all, “No, you have runner’s feet based on the calluses & your calves have great muscle tone.”

“I pass a lot of Krispy Kremes,” I explain.

haha that’s awesome. my mom’s pedicurist (is that a word?) told her she had dancers feet. she is not now, nor ever has been coordinated in any way similar to a dancer. i told her they were trying to get a bigger tip out of her. =) i love your response!

that’s too funny.
my lady evaluated my runner’s calluses and asked if i wear heels a lot. i guess they have the same results :)

PS- You have great legs!

You were in cheer, though, right? Speaking from experience, that and dance will give you calluses for LIFE.

Yes! I did ballet for 8 years, then was a cheerleader for 6 years.

That’s better than my OB asking me if I did ballet while she is giving me my episiotomy. Apparently I have a thick perineum. I am not a dancer and never have been a dancer.

I get the same thing when I go in for a pedicure….because I am a runner and two of my toenails recently turned black, died and then fell off of my feet after a half marathon.

So, they painted my TOE instead to look like a nail. It was tragic & sad.


Therese May 16, 2012 at 3:33 pm

The same thing happened to a few of my nails when I was dancing! My nails are all messed up as a result!

Had a similar experience. I got a pedi last week, and the woman asked if I’m barefoot a lot. I work in an office where I tend to walk around sans shoes, even in the winter. Anyway, she commented that I don’t have “winter feet”, which I guess means my feet aren’t as smooth as some who wear winter appropriate footwear (i.e. socks and closed toe shoes) more often. Guess lotioning isn’t helping so she prettyfied my feet.
