As I mentioned earlier, Devil Mountain 50 was the first time I had blisters and knowing that my distances aren’t getting any shorter, I decided to be proactive and test some anti-blister methods. I finally bought a pair of Injinji toesocks. My first instinct was that they were going to be too thick between the toes, so I bought the performance series lightweight toesock, thinking the thinner the better. I didn’t even notice the socks on during my run and the cushion between the toes seemed to kept them a bit dryer. So all and all, it was a good experience.
Here is the thing, I have to test them with a really long run or even a race, preferably before Leadville. One of my concerns for Leadville are that they are not that easy to put on fast and I am thinking that I will be a bit out of it too. I don’t know how often I will be checking my feet, I guess that all depends on how they feel, but it will be at least two or three times. Now I am assuming my crew will help me with it, but it could turn out to be a pain. I will definitely wear them as the first pair and maybe swap out as needed. I highly recommend them.
