Running in Virginia
Although I am NOT the runner my son is...I am an occasional runner with a large tendency towards hard hiking on trails in the woods...
I did go running on the 'common' grounds in my brother's neighborhood with my sister in law yesterday.
I ran in my Five Finger Vibram shoes.
After using them exclusively for over a week I can say...for me, they are awesome.
Running the trails with wet grass, mud, rocks, roots, and gravel was fun in them.
I leapt over berry briers sticking out into the trail and enjoyed the feeling of running like a kid.
I haven't worn shoes since last week at my job. My feet are very happy.
So how are my legs and feet after running about 2 miles yesterday?
Just fine, thank you.
The Five Fingers may not be for everyone, but they sure do work for me.
However, I will sincerely miss hanging out in my brother's pool now that I have to fly back home today....
