Ow. Ow. Ow. OW.

I just spent twelve hours walking around on concrete. I feel like my feet have turned into those little gargoyle claws that they have on the bottom of those old tubs. I’ve tried wearing sneakers, two pairs of socks, three pairs of socks, foot pad inserts, those awful gel things that make you want to murder the people in the commercials.


And every year my feet hurt just the same.

Is there no miracle shoe?

Seriously, I’m looking for suggestions.



  1. Love the new look Dave, though it’s probably not that new; I just haven’t been through in a while.

    I wish I could give you an iron clad method, but I’ve been in your shoes *no pun intended* and I’ve yet to find adequate relief. I guess it just depends on what kind of shoes you have on at the time.

  2. Why on earth do you spend 12 hours walking around on concrete once a year? It’s official – you are crazy.

  3. Try a pair of Merrell maybe wear hiking socks with them or at least running socks that have extra padding.

    The Boston Marathon sucks huh? =P
    I will actually be up there this weekend. I know you are crazy busy but I might call you to see if you want to grab a drink sat. night
