As you might imagine, walking 60 miles in 3 Days takes a toll on the feet.
- Halfway through the Walk – happy feet
- 2nd half of the Walk – blisters and more blisters
- And a lost toenail or two
In 2006, I discovered MBTs.
Mighty Blessed Toes
MBT is short for Masai Barefoot Technology. It’s the funny-looking shoes with the curved bottom, and existed before Skechers Shape-Ups found Kim Kardashian.
I don’t know why I let the shoe salesperson talk me into the closed shoes. I went in for the sandals.
- The closed shoes eliminated the blisters
- I still lost my big toenail – too much pavement pounding
In 2007, I purchased MBT sandals and happy feet were born.
- No blisters
- No lost toenails
- 3-Day bliss
So, what did MBT do? They discontinued or changed the model of my shoes.
There is a similar version in a men’s style, but I could not find a size small enough to fit my needs. Generally, on the 3-Day, you get shoes a size larger since your feet swell. Too much information?
- I tried a different MBT model
- It did not give me the support I needed
- I was very sad
I tried other walking sandals. I was left moaning ~
♫ I want my MBTs ♫
A few weeks ago, I found my MBT sandals in a men’s size that would work for me.
I bought two pair.
- And they were on sale!
- The foot gods are smiling
- And I have happy feet once again
3-Day #9 Here I Come
My happy feet are rejoicing as they prepare for my 9th 3-Day Walk.
I have September and October to raise at least $473 to reach the $2,300 minimum we are required to raise.
