During a training run last week a stump jumped out and smacked my big toe......hard. I immediately knew Iwas not walking this one off. I ran back to the car in alot of pain. By that afternoon I was limping and the toe was throbbing. The next morning a visit to the foot surgeon was in order. She used a white hot needle to pierce my toenail in order to allow the built up pressure behind the toenail out. The smell of burnt flesh filled the room as I felt the searing pain in my toe. We both decided that it was probably not broken but that at least a week off running was in order.
The Montrail Rogue Racer is a nice addition to the Montrail lineup. What I did not realize is that it can definetly be used as a road/trail hybrid. Due to its great cushioning system it can also be worn by medium to larger size guys (170-190 lbs) and gals (130-150) who are experienced and efficient runners. The toe box is roomy too so you guys with wider feet will probably like it too.
