RD10: In Your Shoes

Pack check in and updating of logs.

My shoes today: gray Hoka One-One Bondis in grey--my dedicated walking shoes. I'm walking as I record.

In your shoes:

Specialized running socks--cotton/synthetic mix for breathability and fitted shape to reduce friction. Different heights are available.

Sources: Big box sporting goods stores have these. I also order mine in 3 packs from RoadRunnersports.com

Your feet: foot prepration can include

  • vaseline on the foot to reduce friction. Try it before you get grossed out. Vaseline on the hot spots.
  • Rolling your feet on a tennis ball.
  • Clip your toenails
  • Bandaids on the blisters.

Insoles--from store bought to personally fitted. Sources: RR Sports, Nike stores, Running Specialty stores, Big Box sporting goods stores. From $20 to about $100.

Heel inserts--typically used for shin splints or to prevent them, if you know that you are prone to them. Sources: RR Sports, Nike stores, Running Specialty stores, Big Box sporting goods stores.

PLEASE support your local running specialty store!
