I am a 31-year-old vet assistant from North Carolina. I got into running last year as a way of relieving stress and got hooked. I started out with my first 5K last spring and progressed slowly through different race lengths til I hit my goal, my first marathon this past march. I began looking into minimalist footwear during my marathon training as I had many aches and pains that usually plague runners. I wanted to share my journey into barefoot and VFF running as I make my discoveries along the way.
