Mystery of the universe #8403750

So please, all those of sound mind and strong opinion, tell me why, after a nice long run of no specific distance, the tongue of my left running shoe migrates to the full outboard side of that space between the lace holes and the right one stays perfectly straight?

The left shoe is laced identically to the right shoe and the lace is threaded through the tongue slot that is supposed to hold it in place. The laces are tied with the same tension, best as I can tell.

Is this a problem? Not necessarily although only a specialist might know if some aggregate aggravation is going on there with that.

Time to get out the video camera, David, and film your self running. Head on, away, sides. I wonder if you are twisting your foot or otherwise striking oddly.

Jon is a smart guy. No video, no shoe tongue help. I don't make up the rules, that's just the way they are.

Yup - I'll bet it's some pronation or something like that. Running store shoe people tell me I seem prone to overpronation MUCHLY on ONE foot, but not much on the other.

So you're Aquarian - that means YOUR birthday is coming up too, eh?

Ditto Jon's comment. Something about footstrike here is different between right and left.

It would be more telling if this happens with all your shoes. If only with one pair, then I'd suspect more having to do with shoe design.

Clearly this is due to a hyperactive left brain. Otherwise, you wouldn't give a sh*t! Yes, you can thank me later ...
