My skin is definitely allergic to just about every brace out there. I’m going to need to get a good ace bandage or twelve. But good news! I ran 3.4 miles today and it was GREAT. I have missed running so very much — so to return really lifted my spirits today. I didn’t go as fast as I normally do (I want to be sure my ankle is really ok), but it’s not what it’s about. And, I’ve finally found what I think will be a workable pair of shoes for me. Brooks sizes down to a 5, and since I know my right foot could do a 5, I’m going to give them a try. I did some reading / investigating on the differences between kids shoes and adults — and, simply put, they normally don’t build kids shoes to run marathons, if you get my drift.
I’ll give a full review of the lovely Ghost 3’s that are on their way as soon as I get them on my feet and get 10 miles or so in ’em!
