Hi to all, I'm a new member residing in FL, orginally from NYC. I'm also member on the Dailymile (http://www.dailymile.com/people/SRamFL#ref=tophd) under the same user name...so be sure to "friend" me. I'm also a forum member over at www.birthdayshoes.com. I'm still new to minimalist running; took me the better part of seven or eight months to "find" my forefoot consistently, mostly because I had injured my left knee late in 2010. Came off a recent ankle (re)injury. Now off to shoulder surgery (ugh) which means no more running for nearly two months. One minimalist newbie problem I have is coming down too hard during my footfalls leading to "hot feet" whenever I use anything but VFFs. Any tips will be appreciated. Anyhow...happy weekend to all.
