My Merrell Pace Glove barefoot running shoes on their first run - I love their fit.
Merrell Pace Glove
I’ve taken the first step towards unshod running with my new Merrell Pace Glove shoes. These lightweight, gorgeous, flexible and comfortable shoes make me so deliriously happy that I want to run for miles in them. Making the switch to barefoot shoes is a slow process and I’m trying to be as careful as possible. High five to Jason Robillard (of Barefoot Running University) and Vanessa Runs for inspiring me and helping with the transition.
Cut a little longer and roomier than their running skirt, the athletic skirt with attached compression shorts do not ride up so you can focus on running, not tugging your shorts down. Two side pockets perfect for a few gels, keys or an iPod.
Summer running means chub rub and chafing (at least for me). Rubbing a little bit of Body Glide to into trouble spots creates an invisible barrier against friction and moisture. SPF version and women-specific types are also available.
