I am training for London Marathon 2013.
I started training in April 2012, and I am having some issues with my feet due to having something called Morton's Toe, this is where your 2nd toe is longer than your big toe.
During my run yesterday (11 miles, my longest yet), my right 2nd toe seems to have taken a large amount of abuse.
The route is relatively flat but with some short steep descents/ascents.
Has anyone heard of some kind of padding or insoles that can prevent this from happening as I am in agony now, last night every time the bed sheets touched my toe it was awful.
Have you tried shoes 1/2 a size bigger?

You can get these toe protectors made from foam that slide over your toe. I'm not sure how effective they will be or their proper name but I'm sure if you go into a big Boots or pharmacy they'll stock them. It's worth a go
Participating in such a big event and having a bad foot, that's hurting.. really hurting. I hope you get well soon.
Yeah I've used those foam things for your toe. They're really good actually I think I did get them from Boots as well! But if your shoes are seriously damaging your feet it's definitely best to just try the half size up like Rob mentioned. There's only some much damage a foam toe can prevent!
