I have been a minimalist runner for about nine years and many thousands of miles now, running in FiveFingers, huaraches, and other minimalist shoes.  During this time, my feet seem to have grown progressively wider and harder to fit into any sort of enclosed shoe design. 700 more words



My first Boston marathon has come and gone and was utterly unforgettable.  The race itself  was challenging: race day was fairly warm (perhaps 70 degrees at start time, it felt almost hot after training in 30-40 degree temperatures), there was not a cloud in the sky and little shade along the way, and the course always seemed so crowded with runners that I found it difficult to get into a rhythm.  179 more words


Skora Form - second update

After 418 miles, my Forms have reached the end of the road. I have worn holes almost completely through the outer edges of both shoes. At this point, experience tells me I will ruin a good pair of socks trying to get one last run out of my shoes. 87 more words

Developed by Dr. Casey Kerrigan, a Harvard M.D. who spent over twenty years studying the effect of shoes on human motion and forces during walking and running, they boast to be the only shoes designed from inside out in order to minimise the negative stress and strain that footwear inflicts on a woman’s muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. 136 more words
