Re: Plantar Fasciitis from Merrells??

I've been wearing the Merrell Road Glove 2 for 6+ months almost daily, with plenty of running and WOD's 5x a week and have not had any issues. In fact my feet feel better than they have in years.

Re: SO Frustrated

I didn't read through every response, but my $.02 is you need to work on your self esteem as much as you are working on your fitness. You should be PROUD of the fact that you are showing up to...

Re: First month in. I have caught the CF FEVER!

Yeah I can relate to you, I'm a pretty laid back guy. Crossfit has pushed me harder then I ever would push myself - and I find I just can't wait to go every day. To work out. Weird. Haha. I've...

Re: Got a little extra time at the box: how do I make the best of it?

Mobility and core work is what I would do if I had that slice of time. GHD situps and back extensions have really helped my lifting a lot more than I would have guessed (suggested by my coach). ...

Re: Suggestion for beginner footwear.

Thanks for posting, I think this has pushed me over the edge. $ has been a factor for me too - I have some Saucony Prestige running shoes that I've been using, but they have a ton of cushioning that...
