‘Running The Urinals’ At The Preakness Stakes Is A Sacred Tradition

As Saturday’s Preakness Stakes pits the top horses in racing against one another, things are going to look different.

In Baltimore, it’s a party for the Preakness. Or as it has been dubbed, “The Freakness.”

Debauchery.

For those in attendance, rain or shine, the day begins early in the morning and ends well after

Now that the tracks are clear and the turf has dried, running is a great way to get outdoors and burn some calories while you’re at it. It’s also a free activity to do in the summer, without having to pay a membership fee at a gym or wait for an open treadmill.

If your feet hurt on short runs, you probably just aren’t wearing the right shoes. But it’s common to start getting toenail problems when you start increasing your mileage, like training for a marathon. Here’s what to do if you’re getting black toenails, or worse.

(What’s worse than black toenails? It turns out that toenails can fall off if they’re subject to enough injury. If this has never happened to you, you’re probably absolutely disgusted right now. If it has—and I’ve been there—you know that it’s actually not that big a deal, and
