Barefoot Shoes

I’ve been running in barefoot shoes for over a year now. Since then many friends have jumped on the bandwagon. Jackie, Joy and I are running in them for the Warrior Dash coming up this weekend. It’s much more efficient than sneakers in this case just because they can be washed and hung to dry; most sneakers won’t be salvageable after so much mud. Most recently, Alex purchased a pair. Honestly, next to Kate, I figured he would be the last to buy some. But I’m happy to report we did our first 4miles in our new Vibram FiveFingers this evening and while sore, we’re both feeling pretty darn good! 4miles is the furthest we’ve run in awhile too. Check out our new running shoes:

We’re currently training for a 5k at the end of July. I have one on my schedule for the end of June but with co-workers in place of Alex. The Balloonfest 5k at the end of July is our ultimate goal though (especially since it’s two weeks before the wedding!). We did the same race last year, it’s at the NJ Festival of Ballooning, just after the 6:30am balloon ascension. Yes, it’s early, but wow, is it ever amazing! We had such a great time last year, we’re going back again. The finish was the best: on an airport runway. If you’re interested, registration is still open, we’d be happy for you to join us! =)
