And yesterday, after my run, I discovered they'd made a bloodbath. So I wrapped the neighbour in a nice plaster with little trains on it, and thought no more of it.
I'm hurt real bad!
Today I went running, but after three miles my little left toe started sending me frantic messages:
'I'm hurt real bad!'
I ignored it, because I hate whiney toes. But after another mile it hurt so much I decided I to take a look.
I took off my shoe, and saw my little toe's neighbour's plaster had created a nice big blister on my little toe! Feeling like the little mermaid I tried to hobble home, because there was no way I was putting my shoe on again. It hurt too much!
How do I get home?
'So this is barefoot running', I thought to myself. But soon my feet started to hurt and I tried to find another solution. I tried to tie my whole shoe beneath my foot, but that most certainly didn't work. Then I had this great MacGyver moment:
'I'll use my sock to wrap my little toe in! And then I'll put my shoe on.'
So I did, and it felt wonderful! 'I can walk again!' I shouted in delight.
But when I got home I put a plaster on my little toe, just to be sure. It had little eskimo's on it.
I hope it's neighbour doesn't get jealous.
Using some lubricant, like Bodyglide, on the toes that rub each other the wrong way can help a lot. Also make sure your running shoes are suitable for your feet.

You could also buy some toe socks, like Injinji toe socks.
