@#%* Blisters!

My home medical treatment didn't work. Dag-nabit! (However you spell it.)

Not sure what I should try next, but maybe putting the blister block on kept it from draining and drying out. I took a nice easy walk to the library and back - 2 miles round trip. I wore regular running shoes - the pair I wear with jeans, not serious walking shoes. The blister is coming back.

I thought I was a blister expert after my serious bout with them a few years back. Obviously, I was wrong.

I think my best bet is to remove the blister block and let the area air dry. Maybe the skin will toughen up and start to callous. I hope so. I was planning to enter the Run Happy 10K this weekend!
