We still feel new at this and have had a great time trying to figure out the safest way to make the transition. I think that going into the winter was the hardest of all. We lost the 'feel' of the road because of -20 temps and colder, bare footing is just not that appropriate. So as we get into the spring and summer we will find it a bit easier to experiment with feeling the road. Although I must say that I absolutely love my vibrams, and these are now what I am consistently running in.
Aside from the barefoot issue, the book also inspired us to see other things in our lives as well.
I believe that Coach Vigil was a huge inspiration for us both. He gave his athletes things to develop in their character as they trained as runners. At the side of our blog page we have his quote about living abundantly, relationships, and integrity. If this book has not yet been digested by your mind I would recommend it. There is so much more to this book than just bare footing, everyone I have talked to about their experience with the book has revealed something new to me. As we all see the world through our own experiences we all collect information differently as well, so it doesn't surprise me that we all take something different away from this book as it is so packed with information and one heck of an awesome story.......
If you have read this book, please leave us your thoughts, what did you get from it?
