Afraid to ask: Might I need larger shoes?

I thought I managed to survive three pregnancies without growing a shoe size, but it probably is NOT a good sign if your fresh pedicure chips as soon as you run, right? At first I blamed the cheap nail salon where I was getting my toes done ("It had to be fake OPI! Chipping just one day post-pedi??") but then I went to a more expensive place, and I still had the chipping right after I ran.

So either OPI nail polish isn't as long-lasting as it used to be...or my toes don't have enough room in a size 8.5.

(Please, please tell me OPI sucks! I don't want to be a 9!)

I'm also afraid my favorite running shoe, the Nike Lunar Glide (now available as the Lunar Glide 2) is no longer the perfect match for my bigger and probably flatter post-baby feet.

But with all that I went through before I found the Lunars, I'm not sure I'm up for another session of match-making.


  1. I switched to the Lunar eclipse. I may be more in love with it than the glide. It's what I trained and ran the marathon in. I notice it doesn't make my toes hurt after long runs like my glides were doing. I only had one slightly black toenail after.

  2. I am going to check them out! Do you have to replace every 200-300 miles or so? That's the big drawback for me about Nikes but I think that's the price you pay for a more lightweight shoe. I am kind of sick of everyone dissing on Nikes!
