I do a little running. Sometimes I run for a really long time. For first-hand accounts of the occasional ultramarathon, trail race, and maybe even a road race, as well as whatever else is on my mind, this is the place.

Holey VFFs and a custom pair
A year ago, I got a new pair of red and black VFFs (see here) after I wore a hole in the sole of my blue ones. I finally started feeling a hole coming on my red ones, and this week it finally wore through. I figured I must run more heavily on one side or the other, and pulled out my old ones to compare. To my surprise, the hole is in the other foot. The good news is, now I have a cool red and black and blue pair with no holes. I figure since most of my runs these days are in the pre-dawn darkness, no one will be around to laugh at me for wearing mismatched shoes.
Kelly said I could make the full transition to barefoot running by wearing these until the sole is completely gone. Hmm. . . . it's a thought. . . .
I know you're jealous of my one-of-kind, custom VFFs!
