Both John and I have been dealing with lingering injuries from our build-up to the Eugene marathon. So, John was the guinea pig and tried out some of these super bouncy shoes that have been popular in the ultra-running crowd for awhile. He gave the big thumbs-up so I got my own. We call them our clown shoes.
Ironically, I also got my first pair of true minimalist shoes (Vibram five-fingers) this week. I went minimalist and maximalist in the same week!
