5 miles @ 8:05 pace

My plan tonight was to complete an easy six miles on the treadmill after work. When I got to the gym, I realized I forgot socks. No bigs. . .or so I thought. A few miles into the run, I noticed some discomfort in the toe box of my shoes. By mile five my feet were screaming. After gingerly stepping off the ‘mill, I looked down to see that my shoes were soaked with blood. Gross! I skipped my last mile and walked barefoot to my car. 🙂

I want to know. . what do you do about blood stains on your shoes? Try to wash them or leave them as a badge of honor?
