    Hey, I'm experiencing some numbness on the front inner (arch) side of the big toe on one foot. I've
    never had this happen before and though at first I suspected an oncoming blister, that was not the
    case. For the first day or two of this, I would occasionally feel a sharp pinprick sensation in the
    toe, but that no longer happens. No real discomfort now, just an odd, slightly numb feeling.

    FYI, I don't believe this is running related, because this happened in the middle of a week away
    from running (or workouts of any kind), due to a very busy schedule. What I WAS doing was moving
    house, lifting and carrying a lot of boxes and furniture. I was wearing what I thought were my most
    durable and supportive shoes, my leather Doc Marten casuals, along with the orthotics that I
    normally wear.

    The only thing I can think of is that my foot may have been slipping a little in the shoe and the
    toe was striking or rubbing the inside of the toe box. Any other thoughts?



    Not every race can be a perfect experience, but every race can be a learning experience.
