Ouch

Right now I'm suffering from a case of plantar fasciitis, and (based on some half-assed Googling) this might be caused by bare-foot running (which I've been doing for a while now) or it might be cured by barefoot running-- this reminds me of Homer Simpson's maxim about alcohol: "the cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems."

This is why you need Vibram Five Fingers.

yes-- or it's why i DON'T need the vibram five fingers. but i'm going running today despite the pain, i read (on the internet-- so it's got to be true!) that you can train right through the plantar fasciitis . . .

and beer really does help.

your should probably just shave down your feet, the excess weight of your foothair is most likely the cause
