Trust me - this is a game-changer. And no, they're not paying me to type this.

A quick recap: we were on vacation in Hawaii over Christmas and we took a boat tour for whale watching. The weather wasn't cooperating and the sea was an angry girl - we hit a wave and I went flying across the deck. Broke my right ankle and broke my left pinky toe.

So, I'm in a walking boot for six weeks. The first thing I noticed was, "Man, my back and hips are killing me." I can walk in it, so I'm getting about 5K steps in per day. The stinky part of this whole ordeal is that the boot makes my gait uneven.

A HUGE thanks to the listeners on the Pat and AJ Facebook page who suggested this - it's called Even Up. It attaches to your shoe and brings your other foot up to the same level as the boot so you're not walking unevenly.

This is literally life-changing. I can walk without getting tired and I don't have the back pain at the end of the day. I can't recommend this enough.

You look a little like Frankentstein but trust me - it's worth it.
