Anima sana in corpore sano

The plantar fascia is the connective tissue in the foot that strings all them toe bones together… to make sure they don’t drop off. And because of its finger-in-every-pie role, it is like the nerve centre for the foot. So what happens is… the minute your PF gets inflamed, which mine often does, you end up limping like a duck without its webs.

My feet, after I had it appraised by a running expert, is flat as a trowel. This zero arch situation makes me very susceptible to Plantar Fasciitis, a condition that I’m now trying to correct with maximum stability shoes (there’s a hard rubber bridge in the middle of the shoe that gives me the arch I don’t naturally have).

The brand I finally elected to use was Asics. Somehow, I feel safe in their shoes. They costs an arm and a nut sac though. My running consigliere calls it the Mercedes Benz of shoes.

Yesterday, I discovered something very interesting. The acronym for the latin term “Anima sana in corpore sano” is ASICS. Translated it means, “Healthy Soul in a Healthy Body”
