One came detached down half of one side but that's it in 4 marathons. I do cut them about a week before and put a few layers of nail varnish on them. The half-detached one happened the only time I didn't put nail varnish on them.

Never lost a toe nail in 10+ years of running and 27 marathons, some do, some don't.

three. nails on both little toes going - one black, one 'mobile' when touched. Morton's toes, so get more damage than big toes - one second toe swelled up like a cherry tomato, then my four year old stood on and it burst all over the carpet. Whole top and end of toe hanging by a flap of skin, including the toenail. Will Definitely look for a gel protector from Boots. Thank goodness for the RF forum.

Flat Foo.ted,
27 marathons? That's amazing! I thought 1 was tough enough! What was your favourite?
I'm about to lose a nail from Brighton Marathon, he's hanging in there but it won't be long!
