One reason why the long-distance runner is lonely.

Good, athlete-friendly pedicure recommendations in L.A.? (Preferably the west side.)

I'm an avid runner and cyclist, and my feet get destroyed from the constant activity on a regular basis. (Yes, I have high-end and appropriate athletic footwear; this is just the nature of my feet.) For the last few years, I've tried to treat myself to occasional pedicures to keep Hobbit-foot at bay, but I really need to step up the treatment (so to speak). Prior to now, I've been in Boston, where I had a much-beloved homebase for such things, but thus far I'm adrift in L.A.

Recommendations abound on Yelp, but their prime recommendation left me even worse split heels and sores than when I started. Plus, I tend to think the majority of reviews focus on the "nice nails and polish jobs" aspect of the pedi, and not so much the "kindly grind down my inch-thick callouses and split heels" side, which is what I really need.

So, fellow athletes (and those who tend to them). Any preferences for expert foot love in L.A. that will rejuvenate my exercise partners down south?

I'd ask around at the local runners' or cyclists' club. I'm sure it's a common problem. You might also ask a sports oriented podiatrist if they can recommend someone.
