Any barefoot monkeys out there? I've decided it's my best escape from being a walking, talking pelvic stress fracture. Embracing my inner simian with my new five-finger Bikilas and even some true barefoot time on the treadmill.
The Year of the Monkey
Barefoot at Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
That's just full-on berserk.
I think I broke my left great toe yesterday (1st phalanx) with a spectacular stub along 18th Street. Wonderful sprawling dive, complete with bloody knee and new friction-holes in my Bikilas. I kept going for five miles because that's what a monkey does.
And I'm undaunted, "barefoot" beats traditional shoes hands down. I'm back in my bikilas as soon as my swollen toe will fit back in there.
I don't know any barefoot runners but had raced against some but
running barefoot isn't for me.
Confirmed! Fracture through the first phalanx, even into the IP joint a little bit but no displacement. Walking boot X several weeks, but probably still won't stop me from slipping on the five-toed shoes and running quietly after work. I'm an incorrigible, AssStrong patient.
I still have my AssStrong bracelet. That was so classic.
