The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Your shoes most likely are tied too tight. Your shoes should be a bit loose on your feet when tied.
Roads were made for journeys...
Also, if you've got two sets of holes (side by side) at the very top (most shoes do), use the narrowest set... I've heard from a reliable source (a running-specialty store owner and running enthusiast) that the widest holes are useless and may actually cause problems.
A bit off topic, but I've always understood that the side-by-side holes at the top of the shoes were to facilitate a lace-lock technique. See http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/locklacing.htm. I use this lacing technique on certain pairs of shoes to help keep my heel from slipping forward without having to tie the rest of the laces too tightly.
