 why do my toes hurt when i run

why do my toes hurt when i run

The toes might be a small part of your body, but they can significantly derail your running routine when one is injured. Many running toe injuries can heal within days or weeks with just putting ice on the injury and cutting back on mileage; however, a more serious injury might require a trip to the foot doctor. A common toe complaint for runners is also, luckily, the mildest: a blister. Blisters are caused by friction between your skin and either your socks or shoes. The outer layer of skin separates from inner layers, and the space between fills with lymph fluid. Blisters are most common when you try out new shoes or increase your mileage. However, most serious causes of toe pain include hammer toe or stress fractures. Hammer toe causes one or more of the smaller toes to bend upward. A

why was the discovery of the rosetta stone so important

The Rosetta Stone, a 1700-pound piece of rock (called a stele) discovered in the sands of Egypt, was the key to modern understanding of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. The Stone, discovered in 1799 by a soldier in the French army headed by Napoleon Bonaparte, contains essentially the same text in three different languages: Ancient Greek, Demotic, and hieroglyphs. A full translation of the Greek versions was completed in 1803, but it was 20 years before linguists worked out the details of the hieroglyphs. Bonaparte became leader of the French army and people in the late 18th Century.
