I often see experts talking about how we should run as though we're on hot coals, or something like that, so that we keep our footsteps light. I'm no expert, but I'm not sure I agree with this. More thoughts on the topic:

You can't just paste a link?

OK, there we go.
To make it work, type the text you want, highlight it, then select the "Insert Hyperlink" button (the little chain with the "+"), then post your link in the text box.
Should look like this
. Easy peasy.
(Oh, and make sure to delete out the "http://" in the text box before pasting your link. Going to bet you didn't do that.)
I used the hyperlink button for that last post. Whatever, I always just kind of instinctively feel my way around with computer stuff and usually end up with an acceptable result.
I tend to think of running on hot coals like tiptoeing or prancing, but then again I've never done it :) Being light on your feet is good advice, but you don't want to prance around on your toes. I like the analogy of pushing a scooter with your foot - touch down, propel, and pick back up in a quick, fluid motion.

Yay, I inserted the hyperlink correctly.
Pete, I'd wonder if the "scooter" analogy would leave you with the forefoot (especially toe) wear I've seen on my Skora Fits. You have to emphasize the "lift" part at the end.
Under the big toe? Could be slippage at toe off, or a bit of twisting between the shoe and ground.
Mine's under the outer toes and at the very tip of the shoe.
