New from NE Texas!!
Hello! I'm just now learning about the barefoot running and ChiRunning. I have been running off and on for several years and have always had to stop due to injuries to heal. Then start back, to have it happen again. I'm here looking for a better way. Running is my way of releaving stress and relaxing. My main injuries in the past has always been shin splints, plantar fascitis, achilles pain and tight calves, and (most recent injury) hair line fracture to my left foot. My goal, THIS TIME...... is to start SLOWLY and build my way up. I would love to run a half marathon by this time next year. I'm a full time nurse, mother of 3, & love the outdoors! Looking forward to learning all I can and maybe make some friends here. :o)
Welcome! I think you will fit right in here! We are a family of three who love the outdoors as well.
I used to have a morton's neruoma. The best thing for me was going barefoot as much as possible, and wearing minimalist shoes with a wide, unrestrictive toebox, especially in the metatarsal area. I did not require surgery, and have had happy feet ever since.
