Blistered in L.A.

  1. Hi All,

    Well I finished the L.A. Marathon last Sunday. The run went
    well out to about mile 12. After that I started gradually
    losing ground due to the heat. I don't handle the heat very
    well so I just made sure to drink plenty and keep to shady
    spots as much as possible. The annoying thing was that at or
    around mile 18 I started to blister on the bottoms of both
    feet. (the ball area). All throughout training I never even
    felt the hint of blisters. Our longest training run was 20
    miles and even at that distance I didn't suffer any
    blistering. What could I have done to prevent it?

    TIA,

    M.T.

    This was probably from the extra sweat that was dripping
    into your shoes. Before the start, a small amount of
    vaseline on your feet may have helped.
