Toasty FiveFingered Feet

Hurricane Sandy has finally blown through but we are having a cold snap at the moment so this evening was an ideal opportunity to try out my new Vibram Bikala FiveFingers.

A short but fun 3.5 mile run and at the end of it my feet were toasty and warm. I still prefer running barefoot, but these shoes mean that I will be able to run barefoot style without suffering from frost bite.

I'm Sexy and I know It .....Not

After a three week break due to work and a vacation I finally got back to running the other day with an early morning 5 mile run. Felt pretty good although I was taking it easy with 9.5 min/mile. Until recently all my barefoot running has been done in warm, hot or blazingly hot weather. This last early morning run temperatures were down in the 40's (Fahrenheit) and the only part of me that was cold were my toes.

This is going to be a problem when the really cold weather kicks in so I finally broke down and purchased some minimalist running shoes to be used in cold weather.

After some research I ended up purchasing a pair of Vibram FiveFingers Bikala.
