Marine Basic Training Graduation

Hello gentlemen! I could really use some help right now. My best friend is graduating from Marine Basic Training (in Parris Island) Friday morning and I am going to go watch because I am probably the closest thing to a family member he's ever had. My mom keeps reading online that the recruits were supposed to get packets that they would send out to be able to invite their family members. But he says that it is open to everyone. I honestly don't know a thing about what's going on. I was really…See More

"Ideally you should not feel any pain. But, it is a transition. I would suggest incorporating the old shoes and the new minimalist shoes until you develop your running form.  good luck with the transition."

Minimalist Shoes and Running

I just used my new minimalist running shoes for the first time on Wednesday and today (Friday) my ankles hurt. Not only that but my calves are pretty tight. I only did 3 minutes of running and then 1.5 minutes of walking three times. I'm running the correct way in them; I'm just wondering if this ankle pain is normal? Is it just going to take a few weeks for my body to adjust to running differently than I have my entire life? In addition, should I wait until the pain subsides to go on my next…See More

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

My sister and I were encouraged to reflect on the things that were truly important.Just a few of the things I am thankful for:My health. While I often joke that "I've I'd known I was going to live so long I'd have taken better care of myself" I am very thankful that I've made it to 52 and can still do anything I choose without worrying about my body. My wife's health. Over the past month I've…See More
