I wore my Vibram shoes, and it was the most fun I've ever had while running. I don't know if it was that I was running not on a treadmill for the first time in a while or that I was wearing Avatar shoes, but I actually enjoyed myself while I was running.

And I felt fast! Perhaps because the rest of the track was filled with walkers and slow joggers. But still, I wish I had timed myself because I have a guess that it would be a PR.
The next couple days, random muscles were slightly sore. I can tell my feet/legs are getting strengthened by wearing the Vibrams. My arches (or lack thereof) were tired- in a good way. They were working as they are naturally designed to do, to support and act as a shock absorber for the rest of the foot.
In other running news, I will be doing my second half marathon in April. Sometimes I can't believe that I ran 13 whole miles (plus one block!) last fall, so I've got to prove that I can do it again. Will I be in my Vibrams? We shall see.
