    Our NAMI walk is this weekend at Lakeshore, but we are going to be out of town. It is a 2.2 mile loop with VERY steep hills. I would run it some while Alexis walked it, but I always got the worst “shin splints” from running down the steep hills…..on asphalt. (should I add barefoot in the snow?)

    You must be a hardcore runnner. Once had a swollen toe due to ingrown nails on both the big toe. Got it pulled out with pliers by a doctor. Its a pain so intense that I shiver. The nails just curled all the way in deep into the side of toe flesh. I loved to walk but I guess its better to have the right shoe as well
