DIY Barefoot Shoes – Vans Slip-Ons

I love me some Vans Slip-Ons. Especially clean ones. As a result, I have quite a few pairs that aren’t dead, but aren’t quite fresh enough for first-line duty.

Of course, there are tons of good reasons to go barefoot. It improves running form, and a whole host of other good stuff. That’s all the time I’ll spend convincing you to ditch the standard shoes, because most of you are probably already on board here.

For my barefooting, I love Vibram Five-Fingers. As a result, I get funny looks from everyone.

The solution? Make an old pair of slip-ons feel like VFFs.

Experimenting with Creatine Supplementation

As I mentioned earlier this week, I have an opening in the supplement experimentation part of my life. An opening I will fill with Creatine. Creatine Monohydrate Powder to be exact.

For some reason, Creatine has always been a dirty word for me. A friend of mine took it on advice from his high-school baseball coach, and I remember my surprise that he was willing to tell us about it because I thought it was an anabolic steroid. I should have looked into it more at the time. Instead I missed out on what could have been a useful supplement for me as images of syringes and spoons danced in my head.

We’ll take a more in-depth look at Creatine in a minute, but here are a few quick facts: Creatine is found in food (mostly red meat), and our bodies make it. Also, it seems impossible to overdose with.

Let’s dive in.
