by Rebecca Rushton

Competition run by UpRiver Running, Canada

**Competition has ended**

Hey Folks!

To say thank you for all your support, we would like to give something away. Blisters can be a difficult and painful problem to deal with. For some, especially in long races they can make or break your experience. Andrew Moorey from Global Hydration Water Treatment Systems Inc. was nice enough to give us a BlisterPod Ultra Blister kit from Blister Prevention to give away. The kit has everything you need to treat and prevent blisters in pretty much any situation, whether it be your next race, long training run or expedition. The kit is valued at over $100.

How do you win?

  • Like this post for one chance to win
  • Share this post for an additional chance to win
  • Comment with your best, (or worst we guess) blister story and we’ll give you a third chance to win

Simple right?

If you want to see what's in the kit or if you deal with blister problems regularly and just want to buy one, here's the link. We will announce the winner on Monday. Till then, happy (hopefully blister free) running.

And the blister kit winner is drawn

Congratulations Sherri!

It’s time to announce the winner of the draw!

Thank You so much to everyone who liked, shared and commented with their wonderful blister stories... and the pictures🤢.

We did the draw, and we had to laugh when Sherri Defoe’s name was the one that came out as the winner. After seeing her amazing blister picture we were almost going to give her the kit in exchange for not posting any more of her unimaginable blister pictures😋. Congratulations Sherri we will contact you to get you your prize.

Thank You to everyone who entered, as well as Global Hydration Water Treatment Systems Inc. and Blister Prevention for donating the awesome kit. If you liked what you saw in the kit and want to purchase one the link is in the original post.

It’s amazing to think that although the folks who get blisters when they run know the discomfort and pain is coming, they still choose to run. It’s a powerful reminder of how much we get from trail running and what it means to be able to get out into nature.

Have a great run today 😊

A Fraction Too Much Friction
A Fraction Too Much Friction

by Rebecca Rushton

Think back to your last foot blister. That one on the back of your heel, under the ball of your foot or on your toe. You treated it with a plaster right? You know, to stop that friction. But I bet you think friction is rubbing. It isn’t. Friction is about grip.

Some black toenails are painless, others are extremely painful. Releasing the blood brings instant relief. You can do this quite easily and painlessly by drilling a hole in the nail with a hypodermic needle.

The Hydrocolloid White Gel Bubble - What Does It Look Like?
The Hydrocolloid White Gel Bubble - What Does It Look Like?

by Rebecca Rushton

My mother came to visit last month. She bought a new pair of shoes on her last day, wore them all day, walked all around town and guess what happened. She got a blister on her big toe! And it deroofed. Bad news for mum. But as it turned out, good news for me. Because I needed to photograph how a blister heals with a hydrocolloid plaster. There’s only one other photographic example of the hydrocolloid white gel bubble and I was keen to enhance that.
