another weird toe person here. I think I read once that it is a problem for runners. So I never run Hilarious!

Runners and power walkers often do. That toe gets very sore for them from rubbing against the shoe. It's more tender and the skin is thinner than the skin on big toes.

I did! They're really comfortable. I've only run in them a few times so far... have to start off slowly with such a different style to keep from injuring myself.

Good Bit! How did they feel when you ran in them? Was it an odd feeling?

Honestly, it was the most comfortable I've been when running in shoes, much better than the cheap "minimal" shoes I ran in previously. But then, I'm a barefoot person at heart and only wear shoes at all when I have to - my feet and legs are used to having freedom of movement and lack of support. I think it would be a bit more shocking to someone who is used to heavy running shoes.

I have a longer run with my new running buddy (an old friend, but we've just decided to start running together) tomorrow, so we'll see how they do then.

Glad you like them Bit, I'm not overly fond of the Realflex I got.They feel real good for general where but didn't feel good at the gym Thumbs down I'm the person who like the good heavy support, don't think I'll get used to the barefoot feeling. I thought maybe they would be good for the dance class, kind of like a ballet slipper feeling, but I didn't like them for that either. Guess my old feet just need that support.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I think that there's a lot to what Bit says about the heel strike in everyone's gait. If they aren't cushioning your primary impact zone then they won't be right for you.

I ran three miles last night, which is officially my longest run since college... I'm also now registered for the race in October along with a few friends. It feels so much more real now that I've paid Hilarious!

I'm just debating whether to wear my pink running top and shorts and have pink hair, or wear my green running top and shorts with green hair. I like green hair better, but my pink shirt is the most comfortable.

Hurray! you go girl!
I just heard all about a friend's first ever triathlon, she had a great experience and really was happy she did it.
I think i would take comfort first.

That's great Bit I tip my hat to you.

October is breast cancer month so there may be a lot of pink going on. How about purple, it will really stand out or a combo of green and purple Big Grin

Ronnie, I like purple, but I don't have any purple running apparel.

I bought all my running clothes at a thrift store last month. Pro: three full sets of running wear for $15. Con: not much choice of colors or styles.

I also have a red set of running clothes, but I've dyed my hair red before and didn't much like it. However, it does let me taunt my running partner with "follow the tomato... you can't let a tomato be faster than you", which gets us both laughing when we're starting to get lazy at the end of a run Hilarious!

I know, I could wear green shorts and hair, and decorate my pink shirt with "seeds"... I'd be a running watermelon!

I haven't done anything about getting ready for that 1/2 marathon I wanted to walk. Guess I won't be doing that this year. I kept thinking I would start a walking program when I finished working but I have been so busy I didn't ever do it. Need to get back to the gym.

Gee Bit, That's a tough decision. How long does that hair dye last?

Several weeks, and the bleaching pre-dye is permanent. I still need approval from my boss before I can decide to do it... I've never had colorful hair while teaching before.

I never had a teacher with 'psychadelic' hair -- that would make quite an impression on the first day of school!

Well, I teach a 400/600-level class, so my students are either in their last year of college or first year of grad school. I figure by that time, they've seen it all. If I was teaching young kids, I'm sure it wouldn't be acceptable (even though kids seem to love seeing a "grown-up" with bright hair).
