New “Work” Shoes!


YAY!!!! A new pair of shoes for work!!

So this is a running blog right? You must be asking yourself – why is this idiot posting about his work shoes?  Well, let me answer this brilliant question you have!  My new work shoes?  

My new "work" shoes!

Vibram Five Finger Treks!

I thought that I would try going full-time in VFF’s, as a Podiatry site mentioned that if you were after the “supposed” health benefits – wouldn’t you want to wear minimalist shoes all the time?  This tied in with the fact that my every day dress-shoes caused me knee and hip pain made it sound like a really good idea.   PLUS it should have the added benefit of decreasing any calf-pain while running since my calves will always be “Extended” by not being in any shoes with a raised heel. (see? it applies to running!)  I am wearing them with the Injinji socks today (and I still find the socks to be annoying.  Hopefully I will “get used” to them soon.)

On a running note, last night was a nice 4.5 mile run.  I am looking forward to starting my 18-week marathon training plan next week!

About

I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
