I'm FREDERIC, freelance writer for French running magazine JOGGING INTERNATIONAL and French website http://www.wanarun.net
Throughout 2010 I ran and tried to promote minimalist running in France. I wrote several reviews (sorry in French) of minimalist shoes (VFF KSO, VFF BIKILA, TERRA PLANA EVO, KIGO EDGE, Invisible Shoe huaraches and more recently Soft Star Run Amoc).
Unfortunately as I was training for a sub 3 marathon in VFF, I encountered a stress fracture of the second metatarsal. After 3 months without running I may resume soon. I still don't know how to start back since I would like to run the Marathon de Paris in April. Should I take a cautious approach and wear shod shoes (Saucony, Avia, Asics) or minimalist shoes ?
