Here is the story of a runner who for several years suffered terribly from blisters on his feet. Sometimes, after a marathon, they could be the size of a small egg and looked very unattractive. After such a race, he usually had to live with the discomfort brought on by this state of affairs for several days.
Then one day, Eureka, the blistering stopped! It wasn’t a miracle or any less running or racing. It was the discovery of DOUBLE LAYERED SOCKS! These are socks you can purchase at any store catering to runners and I quote from one such emporium:
These socks are made up of two layers: an inner layer hugs your foot and slides against the outer layer, insulating your skin against friction, reducing the risk of blisters. The outer layer features large vent panels for increased breathability. They feel good on, and certainly keep your feet blister-free and comfortable.
Yes, that runner was me. So, blister sufferers, go get a pair today and run with a smile on your face. This advice is totally without charge.
