Spring is in the Air–First Barefoot Run

I think winter in the Northeast has finally broken – it’s not warm, but it’s trending upwards.  The air is perfect for running and the days are long enough to actually be bright.  I took off the Inov-8 running shoes with heavy socks and put on the Vibram FiveFingers.  The new ones with laces worked really well for running.  It was weird because the Inov-8s feel like lead boots in comparison, and even with low-drop shoes, it was hard to get the “heel kiss” vs. running on the forefoot when transitioning to shoes without any appreciable soles.
