So I've been getting more and more into long walks and was up to 20,000 steps a day. Last week it all came to a screeching halt when my left big toenail turned purple. I had no accident that I am aware of, didn't stub it, drop anything on it or kick Robocop in the crotch. It just turned purple and hurts like hell.

You runners and long-distance types, any idea what might cause something like that? Could it be something as simple as the fact that my second toe leans slightly to the right and that pressure built up over time causing a contusion? The bruise epicenter is definitely the bottom left corner of the toenail.

It's getting better -- the area of dark purple is smaller now -- but I'm concerned if I just go back to doing what I was doing without pinpointing the cause, it'll happen all over again.
