Plantar Fasciitis: Running to Recovery

I have been taking the recovery to my issue with Plantar Fasciitis recovery seriously these past few weeks. Not only have I tapered my run efforts in both intensity and distance I have also been wearing some specialty products which have been provided to me by the good people at Sof Sole. These products include athletic socks (cushioned and anti-friction) as well as performance insoles (Adapt and Athlete)

I have been using them for the past 2 weeks and I plan on using them over the next few weeks hoping to report back on anything usefull that you might be able to use in your battle with this pain in the arch issue.
