Running Barefoot

I slipped my Vibram Five Fingers back on this morning after not running in them regularly for several months. Believe it or not - I had an amazing run in them today and am convinced that they are a tremendous benefit.

Yes - it was cold and the ground was wet this morning after a couple of days of rain. But, like my hands, my feet took a bit to warm up, but after running for about ten minutes everything was fine. In fact - I can't wait to continue to push the envelope and look forward to running in them in snow.

The feeling of being so minimal (I actually felt like I was more connected with my surroundings) was amazing. After the 50KM I ran on Saturday I was looking forward to an opportunity to stretch and relax my legs this morning. My Five Fingers helped me do just that.

And no - this is not a paid advertisement. Simply stated - I like my Five Fingers and plan to incorporate them into my training plan.
