Re: Running shoes advice

An NY Times article on running barefoot:

Personally, I run in shoes and really like them, but if running barefoot works for you, then do it. If I run in no shoes or different kinds of shoes, it hurts. Shoe fit is highly individualized, so it is really worth it to work with someone who knows what they're doing. Running for a long time in a poorly fitting shoe can cause serious and long-term injury.

The shoe industry says that a pair of running shoes will last you 300-500 miles, so you can bet that I try to get as many miles as possible out of my franc!
