Finally had some time this weekend to explore this site, and I found this introductions page, so here goes: I'm currently suffering from two knee problems: my left probably has a slight tear in the meniscus (according to doctor), and it hurts while running fast; my right hurts when I run slow - probably runner's knee. In desperation, I started my own research, and I'm hoping that a change to form and foot will solve some of my problems. In the meantime, I'm still training for a half-marathon on March 9 (with cushioned shoes), and I have x-rays scheduled for the knees. After the marathon, I plan on fully and s-l-o-w-l-y beginning the transition to barefoot/minimalist shoe running. I have begun wearing zero-drop shoes to work, and I already spend my nights and weekends without shoes at home. The good news is I'm under doctor supervision, and he has given me the green light. By the way, this is the VERY short version of my running history and my running injuries. I turn 50 in a few days, and I've been running since I was 13, so yeah, I love running, and I have the full spectrum of injuries to prove it. However, it's time my love affair with running got some sexy new attention to spice things up, and by that I mean, it's time I try barefoot running, reconnect with the world through my feet, and kiss knee injuries goodbye. I'm so happy I found this site. I am incredibly appreciative of the support!
