I work in retail and am on my feet ALL day. There was no way I could miss work for an extended period of time so it was ‘Oofos Ooriginals to the rescue!’ They allowed me to be mobile without feeling ALL of the pain! I told everyone I knew to go out and get a pair!!
I slowly started running, knowing that Fargo was only 2 weeks away. My husband Chris and I drove down on the Friday and I still wasn’t sure how far I was going to run. 15 minutes before the half was about to start, I was sitting in the stands with Chris crying because I was unsure that I could complete this challenge in front of me. I convinced myself that if I had to walk, I would walk. I wasn’t going for a PR by any means but at the same time my ‘runners brain’ still wanted me to do well.
I ran a steady 9:45 mile consistently, through rain and sideways wind, loving every minute of it. There was no foot pain. It just went away for the duration of the run. All I could do was smile!
Did I need my Oofos after the run??? 100%!!! And I wore them for the rest of the long weekend. I even found a pair of Oomg Low Shoes which are just as awesome!
There are so many products on the market for foot pain and they don’t all work for everyone, but Oofos was definitely a helpful aid for me. I wear them every day, at work and at home. Thank you!! For making such an amazing product that helped me run my half marathon!!
Couldn’t have done it without you!!
