    Pictures or it didn't happen

    It's amazing what you can accomplish once you stop caring what other people think. There's a wall near my house that is perfect for scuttling along on all fours, wearing nothing but my workout shorts and Vibrams. Passers-by probably think I've escaped from the county mental health office on the other side of the block.

    Also, has anybody else had the experience, when wearing their Vibrams, of total strangers coming up and asking you weird questions about your shoes? This happened to me at the mall the other day and before I knew it I was listening to an older woman, who looked strangely like Michael Caine, telling me her life story of diabetes and gangrenous foot injuries. I was biting my lip hard for that one. I need to start carrying around business cards with the MDA URL on them.

    Ah, I love hiking in my VFFs. Whenever I go up to the White Mountains, I prepare myself for the onslaught of incredulous looks and dumbfounded questions. I'm looking forward to seeing more fellow VFFers on the trails this summer; they've really taken off over the past year.

    I think I've sold about five pairs of them in the time I've had mine. (I call them my "Gecko Toes")

    Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!

    i will say this, my feet & calves felt the 2 miles, but my back did not... that's a switch from wearing shoes.

    HAHAA! About strangers asking about your shoes...

    How about strangers TOUCHING, FEELING, and SQUEEZING your feet?! Otherwise normal, everyday people with decorum and social graces who will suddenly, excitedly, grab your foot and squeeze it in wonderment?! I get it all the time. I love seeing that side of people.

    PS. Awesome about the kilt and vibrams!
