Barefoot Mama

"I started running barefoot in March 2008. I started one step at a time, one day at a time. I decided to start keeping a journal of sorts. Sharing my history, my journey and my adventures."

I have taken some new paths in relation to my running over the last year. This blog will still include my running adventures but I have to move on with more stories of my family and the journey we have taken together over the last year. This blog was started as a way to help me record my barefoot journey but now needs to become more than that. Please be patient as I explore ways to stay connected with family and friends.

Tired of VFF

I decided I really don't like wearing the VFF. The VFF protect the bottoms of my feet but they hurt my feet, especially between my toes after about 13 miles. Decided to try something new this winter, when the roads are dry and the temps are above 20.
It actually worked. All I needed was a roll of duct tape and a pair of toe socks. Please see my picture. My feet stayed warm and the duct tape actually held up. Very excited about this. :)

  1. i like five finger vibrams better ,i think that five finger vibrams makes the toe boxes on their feet nice and wide,and you will see your calves and bare feet in the process of your running which is the best way to train your muscles of feet and legs.
    Let's go to to have a pair to have a try. i trust that you will agree with me.
