Like many runners – or former runners – I have chronic plantar fasciitis.

I went the usual high tech medical route to fix this: orthotics, the best running shoes etc.

Nothing worked. I stopped running ~ 2004.

I am convinced one factor is being quite overweight. Some experts mention this, but as most people in the west are overweight, it doesn’t get much air time.

After reading Chris McDougall’s book, “Born to Run”, recently, I was also pretty sure that modern high-tech running shoes are part of the problem also.

I now have a pair of Vibram Five Fingers KSOs.  So far so good. (Just walking at this stage: ‘still need to lose a lot of weight before I can resume running).
