Pants,Shirts, and Shoes OH MY!

Brittany: These are what I  run in. They were introduced to me while I was 8 months pregnant, my husband bought them for me and I could hardly put the straps on. The image of me with a giant belly reaching and gasping for air still haunts me! Two weeks after the birth of my son I began running in them … and I will never go back. It simulates the idea of barefoot running, takes about a week of insanely sore calves but I have absolutely no bone, joint, toe pain as I did training for my last half marathon.  Check out the website but be cautious of the hundreds of imitation websites. http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/index.htm

Milania:

I was so intrigued by the idea of barefoot running I too tried these creepy looking shoes. Hate them. They gave me blisters in places I didn’t know you could get blisters on my feet. I came to the conclusion that it was because I have very narrow feet. I could be making that up completely or that could really be the real reason. I wasn’t going to give up on this “barefoot running” idea though, so I gave the Nike Free’s a try. Loved them for a while but they just offered zero support.

Along with having very narrow feet, I also have very flat feet.

Once we started training for our second half marathon, I decided it was time to give up on this barefoot running trend and get back to your average running shoes. I found these… the Nike LunarGlide+ 2 Women’s Running Shoe. I actually love them and have continued to love them. They offer just enough support for my troubled feet but still are light weight. Of course I still had to get the arch support inserts, but they have been great.
