While on my run, with about 1 mile up hill to go, I started feeling my right shoe loosening. I just figured, eh, that's strange, I'll check it out when I'm done. And then it happened. My Yankz lace just blew up and out came my foot! That last mile sucked. I still managed to jog back, but it was difficult. You know that feeling in your legs after you have run a little with flip flops on? The tight calves and shin muscles from gripping your toes to the bottom sole so your foot doesn't slip out? That was me and my right foot.
See examples of what my shoe looks like below if you can make out any details from the grainy picture from my cell phone:
Needless to say, I need to get me a new pair of laces!
