So the husband said it was time to get my fat ass up off the sofa and out of this deep dark gummy bear addiction I've allowed to take over my life.

(What he really said was Are you going run today? Semantics.)

I guess it was bad to eat gummy bears on my way there. And my way home.

On a much more relevant note, I'm not sure about my shoes. I have Brooks pureconnect that I've put maybe 20ish miles on back when I ran regularly. I rotated them with my mizunos. But I think the nav band elastic thing is way too tight. Seriously thinking about cutting it out. It leaves marks on my feet. I'll post a pic in a min. Also my outer arches start to hurt, but I thi k that may be just me needing to get used to the lower drop/ less support.

    Well if you cut the plastic thing out, it probably can't make them any worse at least!

    I had to switch from the Pure Connect to the Pure Flow for the exact same reason! MY feet would get all numb about 20 minutes into my run.

    Great job getting back out there! Not sure about the shoes but they don't look comfortable from the pic you posted.

    Wow, I've ran in Connects for a while, have a wide foot, and have never had this problem. yikes. These shoes actually have great arch support compared to many of the other lower drop shoes. It's one of the reasons I like it so much, I don't have to wear my inserts. I say cut the band if you think it might help.

    I love gummies! So addictive! It took me a while to get used to my minimus shoes. They feel really good now. I'm thinking about geting some 5 finger shoes next.
