It's been a while...

It's obviously been a long time since I updated this blog. I just wanted to drop this note here, and let anyone who might be looking at this know that it's not because of the Five Fingers. I absolutely loved them... as it turns out, however, the 'shin-splint' pain I was talking about in the last post I made here turned out not to be a shin splint - but instead a benign bone tumor. Benign is obviously a good thing, but the fact is it's kept me from doing much running at all since the end of last summer. The thing seems to have solidified somehow, and is now encased in new bone, and I'm being told I can slowly start running again... then in 3 months if it remains painful, or grows, the next step is getting it taken out...

Anyway - that's the deal. Maybe this coming summer I'll get a chance to get back in the FiveFingers.

Til then, have a good run,
