An unfortunate altercation between my flip-flop exposed toe and a baggage cart at the San Francisco airport is going to sideline my training a few weeks. Oops.
It turns out there isn't much to do about a broken toe. You tape it to the toe next to it (get it straight!), and give it plenty of rest, ice, and stay clear of any tight-fitting shoes. Why there are so many nerve endings on a pinky toe, I have no idea, but I'm already standing around like a flamingo in crowded spaces in fear of a misplaced footstep.
Kinda funny that with all the crazy trail running, it's a baggage cart that takes me out. Well, actually not funny at all, but what can you do? I'll have to pass on the Tahoe Rim Trail this weekend...best of luck to all running. Rob Myers, first on the wait list for TRT, fate wants you to race your heart out!
