Pretty shoes and a POPSUGAR giveaway

Just because I discovered that minimalist running is the right thing for me, does not mean that I don’t feel the need to try ALL the shoes.  I love my Altra Intuition 1.5s, but I keep seeing these really cool Skora running shoes on Twitter and Instagram.  I had a really hard time deciding which [...]
