toenail necklace

(looks like i’m not the only one obsessed with toenails…) on january 12, 2006, i received the following emails from jan ryerse:

to: fargasch at g-mail, without the dash, dot com
cc: ultra at listserv.dartmouth.edu
subject: toenail – to be or not to be

pull it off !!! – you don’t want no toenail floating around inside your shoe during an ultra – and also you can mail it to me for inclusion in my toenail necklace that I’m workin on – I’ll e-mail you off-list with my address – needle-nose pliers work really well at removing recalcitrant hanging toenails – go to http://www.stlouisultrarunnersgroup.net and click on photos – that ones being removed a month or so after Badwater 02 – Jan

I’m quite serious – wrap in kleenex and mail to me – Jan Ryerse 823 Limoge Drive Manchester MO 63021 – I’ll inscribe your name on it and include it in my toenail necklace – BTW – good luck in the 50 miler – I hear there are some incredible vistas up on the high trails on Catalina – Jan

    So I gather you didn’t send him your toenail. 🙂 Its one thing for runners to be obsessive about their own toenails. It’s a whole ‘nuther thing to be obsessive about other people’s nails! I say …ewwww!

    So… just a thought, maybe you should look into why you are losing toenails and try to fix that. Run Good!
