I actually miss running. (Never in a million years did I think I would say that).
At 28weeks pregnant, however, I’ve committed to walking 1-1.5miles/day. More power to the women who run 5Ks and 1/2 marathons with bulging bellies, but it’s not for me.
Tim, however, has been running in the recently debuted New Balance Minimus. They’re like the Vibram FiveFingers shoes – but without the alien toe look. He says they remind him of race shoes…like the ones from his bygone high school track & field competitions. Little padding. Lightweight. Lots of traction. Ideal for short distances. Although he’s not completely sold on barefoot running science, he does think it’s been to fun to give them a go on his nightly runs.
Available for both men and women, the shoes come in a variety of colors and for a variety of purposes (trail, cross-trainer, etc.).
