I have been running about 3 miles 3 times a week on and off since October. I want to do a half marathon in the end of April. I recently ran 6 miles in my vibram five fingers no problem. I am starting a training schedule this week. My older brother ran a half marathon in his vibram five fingers and said that they were holding him back and that it would be a really bad idea for me to run a half marathon with them.
