Another run in my Vibram Five Fingers - this time braving the PUBLIC

Posted on Friday, July 23rd, 2010

This morning was the first time I ran in my Vibram Five Fingers on the common sidewalk streets! And let me tell you, though I felt maybe a tiny twinge of embarrassment in the very beginning, to run in those shoes seriously felt amazing! I ran 2 miles without any discomfort, and part of it was on the Guadelupe Trail next to my apartment complex. I think my calves have definitely gotten stronger as a result of these shoes, and it's hard to describe the feeling of pushing off the forefoot and toes that makes the running seem so exhilarating. I just hope I can keep this up for 3 miles, which I still haven't reached yet in these shoes.
