Barefoot Running

For the last few nights I've been running with Nancy in my Vibram FiveFingers, and to my surprise it's been a lot of fun. My feet felt very light, and although I'm normally a mid-foot striker anyway, I did notice my stride shortened slightly, and my knees automatically bent to absorb some of the extra impact.

Maybe it wasn't such a huge change because I spend most of my time at home barefoot, and always have.

Having said that,I'm not going to rush into doing 10 and 20 milers in these things. As fun as they are, I still like my road shoes.

But they are an interesting alternative.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
