In the last pic, how deep is that flap? As long as it isn't red, raw, oozy, gross, anything abnormal underneath, you can carefully trim that flap off so it doesn't catch on anything and rip off to make a deeper "cut". Just trim a tiny bit off at a time and see how Renee handles it. If she seems uncomfortable, don't trim any more off.
That flap will eventually wear off, but if she's running this weekend, I would trim off as much as I safely could so it doesn't catch and tear. And as long as there is no "yuck" under that flap, you could put some skin glue on it after you trim it.
Personally, I would keep a close eye on her if she runs and pull her if she starts limping or seems painful. Wouldn't hurt to wrap that one paw with the flap, either.

To me, it looks like they (the pads) might have been injured weeks ago, at least some time ago...
What kind of surface is she running on? If its smoothe or soft grass or something I think you'd be pretty good, if its pavement or like gritty tennis court type surface then I'd watch her closely.
I agree, temporary wraps can't hurt.
