“The Talk” / It’s not a fungus.

As ultrarunners or endurance athletes, we’ve all had this kind of conversation before.  This one for me was at the doctor’s office a little while ago, and was funny on a couple levels.


“Your toenails look like they have a fungus, that must really hurt.”

“It’s not a fungus. I run alot, and that is what happens.”

“Oh, do you run short distances, or long distances?”
“Long distances.”
“Like marathons?”

“Yeah… sort of.”
“What do you mean ‘sort of’?”
“So, last week, I ran a 50 mile race in California.”
“Fifty?? Five-zero?”
“I didn’t know the human body was capable of such a thing…”
