The #TP100 gave something and took something, that something was skin

Warning: images of post ultra skin follow.

The TP100 gave and stole in equal measure but the thing it stole most of was the skin from my feet and after nearly 8 weeks of ripping skin from the underside of my feet I’m now in a position where I think the bulk of it is gone. The good news for you – blog readers – is that I kept (most of) the offending shavings of skin and here they are. Lucky you. 

You might be wondering why I’m sharing these with you? Well the simple answer is that sometimes it’s good to get an idea of what running 100 miles can do to you, no matter how hard you prepare or how good the kit you have is. Importantly I’m  saving the actual feet images as most of them are too grim for family viewing but remember – take care of your feet. Enjoy.

    Hahaha! This is actually pretty disgusting! I hope the floor around my chair at work doesn’t look like that because my back has been peeling following the sun last week all day today and I keep spotting pieces of my skin! I have no intentions of piling it all up though! 😛
