Day 22: A Day of Rest

Day 22: A Day of Rest

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 07, 2009 1

Today was a day of rest for me. I woke up early and took my baby girl to Starbucks. She wanted to sleep in, but we try to keep her on a schedule. We hung out at the local Starbucks for a couple hours. My parents showed up and played with her for a bit. […]

Day 21: My VFFs Work Great – My Foot Not So Much

Day 21: My VFFs Work Great – My Foot Not So Much

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 06, 2009 0

I went to Richland High School yesterday morning to try out my VFF Classics on the track. Since Run #1 went well on the treadmill, I decided it was time to test alternative surfaces, i.e. the track and the football field. I took my video camera with me to record this epic event. Unfortunately, HD […]

Day 20: Ready for My Second Run

Day 20: Ready for My Second Run

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 05, 2009 2

Today is Saturday. My first run was on Monday. Most of my aches and pains are gone. The balls of my feet are still tender. They’re not calloused at all, and will probably need to be before running becomes terribly comfortable. One thing is for sure: I will DEFINITELY be wearing my injinji Performance Micro […]

Day 18: Someone at Work Finally Noticed

Day 18: Someone at Work Finally Noticed

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 03, 2009 2

I’ve been wearing my black Five Fingers Classics for 18 days now (think I wore regular flat-soled shoes once), and my coworkers finally noticed. In their defense, my baggy jeans touch the floor, so there’s only a little black visible most of the time. People just assume that you’re wearing regular shoes unless something draws […]

It’s Okay to Be Fi-curious

It’s Okay to Be Fi-curious

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 03, 2009 0

word of the day: “fi-curious” – a person interested in Vibram Five Fingers, but aren’t sure they’re ready to swing that way. Most people will be curious about the foot-shaped shoes they see every now and then, but the concept of walking without cushioned soles will turn most people off. I know this because we’re […]

Day 17: Oh Noes – The Post Run Aftermath

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 02, 2009 11

Yes, the dreaded day is upon us. The aftermath from yesterday’s run. I am such a wuss. But that’s okay! I’m just getting started! I woke up this morning, stood up, and OWWW! Pain! What is this strange sensation in my feet and legs? What is it? Oh, Doctor, tell me, am I going to […]

Day 16: My First Run

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 01, 2009 1

After a long day at work, I decided to give my Five Fingers another shot at the gym. I work them all day at work without socks for the first time. I’d been avoiding that, since you end up with stinky shoes that need to be washed when you don’t use the socks. But, like […]
