I honestly thought I’d never break double digits in minimalist shoes. Of course, lately I can’t seem to run single digits in regular running shoes, so I was beginning to wonder if my days running anything longer than a 10K were over. I’m happy to say they are not. Today I’m a little sore (but who wouldn’t be after their first double digit run in almost a year?), my calf is a little tight and cranky, and the balls of my feet are a little roughed up. All in all, I would say it was a successful venture.
In other news, Sparkly Soul sent me two headbands to review (and offered two more for my readers!). I’ve now run in them a couple of times and worn one to yoga once. I even wore one running with my hair down (something I pretty much never do). I have to say they were awesome. I did have to make sure I didn’t push it too far back, but other than that they performed great when running and the sweatier I got, the better they clung. I wore the thin one to pilates and it came off, but I was doing something that had my head on the ground. This is where I should insert a picture of me wearing one LOL, but the self pictures I took made me look insane and no one is here to take a pic for me.
