On the weekend, Jill, Anne and I were puttering around the Annex and, on a whim, I bought Born to Run and am finally (finally!!) reading it. It’s convinced me: I need to transition to a more “free” shoe.
Ever since I started running, I’ve had hip and knee problems. It’s not anything major and foam rolling keeps it under control, but if changing my shoes means I can change my gait and eliminate pain, I’m all for it.
I’m hoping to test them over the summer and make the full transition by the fall for the TBD half I will be running.
So…this leads me to ask: what kind of shoe do you use? Do you recommend it? Have you ever tried a minimal shoe? What did you think of it? Let me know!
