AM - 3 miles around liberty park in the nonconformist direction.

PM - 3 miles around liberty park with james and his roommate chris. nice evening out.

heel/toe walking, icing and stretching.

i just bought some new shoes -- the 3.8 oz. saucony hattoris.  they look like a mix of water socks, altras and five fingers without the fingers.

Up to 6 miles already! How did you like the new shoes?

From JD on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 01:08:10 from

You're the clashiest, ghastliest noncomformist around.

Those Hattoris look interesting.

i'm catching up on recent posts... glad to see you're getting back to running slowly but surely. best wishes! post a review of the shoes after they're broken in.

From Steve Piccolo on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 07:20:20 from

Do the Hattoris seem durable? In the pictures, the soles don't look very durable. But if they are, I might try them. Hard to find minimalist shoes under $100.

From Nancy on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 09:08:37 from

I'm glad you are able to start doing a few more miles without having your leg hurt.

From Paul on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 09:37:14 from

I've been wearing the Hattori's a bit. They are a very different shoe from the Kinvara, much more minimal. And while I've got over 700 miles on my Kinvara's, I'm not sure how well the Hattori's will hold up, particularly the soles. I'll be happy if I get 300 miles on them. But they are a pretty rockin' shoe. Fun to wear.

From Lily on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 10:38:21 from

The look like a swamp thing shoe. Whatever that means...


From allie on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 10:42:21 from

paul - cool. thanks for the info. i was hoping there was someone on here who had tried them out and had some thoughts on this shoe. i bought them blindly online without a whole lot of feedback. as steve mentioned, $80 seemed pretty reasonable for a minimalist shoe, so i figured it was worth a try. it appears that saucony has combined all of the best minimalist features in their design of this shoe, but i guess i have to run in them first before i can actually say anything about them. the biggest draw: laceless!

From Paul on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 10:50:28 from

Yes, laceless is good. They will keep you on your toes (literally), and are akin to running barefoot, without the goofy toe-holder things.

What ever happened to the crocs? :)

Happy to see you running!!

From ChrisM on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 15:46:30 from

they look worryingly much like triathlon shoes

From Burt on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 15:51:07 from

Who are you trying to impress with those shoes? Neptune? King Triton? Aqua Man?

From Merri on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 19:41:59 from

Bur she is one of the daughters of Triton

Great father who loves them and named them well Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Adella, Allie

From Merri on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 19:42:22 from

don't mention her little sister...sore subject.

From Dan on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 22:19:27 from

Nice job Allie. I have looked at those shoes, but I don't think I could run in them - although they do look cool to me :)

Congrats on being Tritons daughter, I had no idea!

From Burt on Thu, Jul 07, 2011 at 22:41:58 from

The gills gave it away for me.
