I'm waisting time on the Internet instead. First it was Facebook, that led to a blog, which led to a giveaway on a blog, which led to me blogging about said giveaway. Barefoot Angie Bee, one of my favorite barefoot runners, is giving away a pair of Leming Minimal shoes on her giveaway blog HERE. Outside of running on the beach, I never really have any plans to run completely bare (feet that is... you never know, I might be tempted to streak depending on the circumstance... ha ha) but I am a pretty big fan of minimal shoes.
I haven't really talked about it, probably because I haven't really been doing any serious blogging, but I picked up a pair of Merrell Lithe gloves (I got an amazing deal at TJ Maxx) a few months ago and love them. I figured coming back from maternity leave was a great time to break in super minimal shoes because my mileage is low as is my pace. I've worn them probably half a dozen times in the past 4 weeks for up to 3 miles and I really like them. I've worn them a lot too walking around, to the park, to the grocery store... wherever life takes me. I think they have been great to help me out with my form and strengthen my feet and leg muscles after taking 6 (well, almost 6) weeks off from running.
Anyway, to keep this short (I really do need to get back to packing), the Leming Minimal shoes look awesome and I'd love to try them too. If you're interested in them, you should check out Angie Bee's giveaway.
