@LAKid53 - I hope the socks do the trick!
I just read some of the reviews on Amazon - several runners said they are okay for walking, but not for running, especially long runs, like half or full marathons. One runner showed the blisters on her feet - between her toes and on the side of her heels. So I think I'll stick with my Feetures and as @dreamfinder said, build up those calluses....

I'm not a fan, but would never hate on anyone who likes virtual races. (I'll admit I've debated doing one of the Hogwarts Running Club races on day) Anything that helps motivate people to run is good in my book. Just wish a) they didn't cost so much and b) were a bit more forthcoming with how much went to charity
I've got several pairs. They can be tough to put on at first, and depending on your toe lengths/sizes you may end up with funky feelings/bunched material from the individual toes. Take a peek at REI (especially their sale/outlet sections) and also SierraTradingPost as they often show up on those sites on decent sale.
Thanks @dreamfinder! So you've had no problem with blisters between the toes? The pictures of blisters a runner posted on Amazon were bad.
4.5 miles yesterday. Lovely weather.
2.7 miles today in not so warm weather and with a few raindrops. Next time running will be my 10 km race this weekend.
A member of the Hogwarts Running Club was cheering us on during the SW Half. I'm curious about the organization. Will have to Google them.
What did the sign say? "Yes, I am at the right park" something like that.
Back from WDW. But honestly, probably need a break until the Pandora Passholder preview in a few weeks.
Ran a points 10K Saturday before driving down to Orlando. Hot and humid. I won my age group but only because everyone else was either running the 5K or the 15K.
Yes, and he was dressed in a Hogwarts robe. I'd never heard of the group before that.
Congrats on the race win!
A win's a win. Congratulations!!
I suspect that there is some modesty in @Texas84 's post and not EVERYONE else was running distances other than 10 km.

I haven't used them for more than a 5k run. I use them with my FiveFingers, or just as normal socks. I end up wearing through my running socks pretty fast (my big toes make holes at the tips) so with a few exceptions I tend to use cheaper ones.
http://hogwartsrunningclub.org/index.html Basically they do a new medal/race every few months. Something like 70% of your race fee goes to charity, the rest pays for your medal. Some of the medals have been pretty cool.
Thanks for the info!
So after a 60 minute training session, which included 3 reps squat pressing 350 pounds, 20 minutes on the arc trainer.
And the gym did add yoga classes!
4m outdoors last night. Debated whether to push it off til this afternoon but glad I didn't because DS's lax game was switched from Friday to today, and now I can attend. Guess the old adage is true - never put off til tomorrow what you can do today.
Happy Star Wars Day, peeps!
As it's been storming (now under severe thunderstorm watch) since I woke up (not complaining, we NEED the rain), gonna have to make my way to the gym for my morning run. But rainy days make me want to stay in bed....and read.
