I am obsessed with my feet and footwear. Suffice it to say, my long bout with foot ailments piqued my interest in non-traditional foot gear. I plan to blog more extensively about this in the future but I wanted to post a quick note about my run at Kill Creek Park tonight. It ROCKED! It marks the first time I have covered the whole 7 miles in my Vibram 5 Fingers. Aside from a little hot spot on the side of one of my big toes, my feet feel better than they have in months.
I don't think I have been magically cured by my 5 Fingers any more than I think that regular running shoes are the root of all evil. But I do think that my feet are benefiting from the strengthening and toughening process that happens when you take to the roads and trail in what amounts to gloves for your feet.
Next thing you know, I'll be building huaraches out of old tires (or Old Navy flip flops already in process).
More later. Ta ta!
