After reading Born to Run, I decided that I wanted to try out this whole barefoot running thing.
Read the book. You'll want to as well.
After reading it, I started seeing people wearing the "barefoot running shoes" almost every time I went for a run.
I became very, very jealous.
So I went and purchased a pair of Vibram Fivefingers.
Aren't they cute?
OK, not really, but I think they're kind of fetching.
Only problem... this is my second pair. The first pair fit in the store, but when I got them home I realized they were about 3/4" too long on the back...so I took them back for the smaller size.
This pair is too small in the toe area. I can't cram my toes in the slot!!!
Can you tell? Can you see all the extra room on my 3 smallest toes??
Frustrating! I don't want to take them back and give up!!
Maybe barefoot running isn't for me.
