Day 5: The Bare Feet

Today was another great run...in fact...two excellent runs!  I did 7 miles in the morning (5 in Bikilas and 2 barefoot), then 3 barefoot miles in the evening with Mr Glow Stick.  Felt fresh and alive for both runs.  I'm falling behind my weekly miles target, but that's OK. I'm feeling great and hope to log some serious miles on day 7.  I might not make up all the missing miles, but it'll be close!  For the last 4 days I've been seeing, and running with, other barefoot runners.  That's quite a change.  Haven't seen too many people in Vibram FiveFingers, but I have a feeling I'll be seeing more and more Vibram and barefoot runners in the next few weeks.  For those wanting to try a touch of barefoot running, check out these two very good books:

"The Barefoot Running Book: A Practical Guide to the Art & Science of Barefoot & Minimalist Shoe Running" by Jason Robillard

"Barefoot Running: How to Run Light and Free by Getting in Touch With the Earth" by Michael Sandler

Day 5 Miles: 10 (67% of goal)
Week Total: 79 (83% on target)
