I ran my 6th half marathon on Sunday (11/27). This is me near the end, alongside the Indian River lagoon. My time was pretty average for me (2:24). Plantar fasciitis was killing me later that evening, but 24 hrs after run, heel is almost back to normal.
Great summary here of the recent trend of barefoot/minimalist running, and the footwear options. Huaraches, foot gloves, and vibram 5-fingers. I think I would like some merrells.
