Shoes or not shoes?

Been reading articles like this one: http://runlikeamotherbook.com/ where it mentions this blog: http://barefoot-angieb.blogspot.com/ Or reading this one http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-238-511--13381-0,00.html and some about these: http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/
Also listening to my yoga teacher, when I was attending more regularly, about my feet being my center, they weren't made for shoes.
Granted, I love the feel of brand new running shoes. They make me say "AAHHH" when I wear them, but I am intrigued. I'm contemplating bike path runs without shoes. Hmm, still in the thinking stages, but to get rid of shin splints... might be worth a try. Although, I have learned from a friend's experience, a little at a time... adjust by breaking those vibrams in, right Juls? :)

Just thinking about it.

School's out, now. I have checked out, finished the schoolyear and already wonder what the students are doing. I can see my girls being silly, enjoying summer. :)) I have interviewed twice for the same position at the school where I did my longterm. Should know by Monday if I have it or not. Fingers crossed. We'll see where my God Positioning System has me next! :)

WooHoo! Bring on Summer! (And Good Luck on the interview.)

I can't possibly imagine running without shoes -- be careful out there LOL!

Without shoes I'd be hobbling, not walking or running! Good luck and fingers crossed for your interview!

Yes, Jen -- a little at a time. The hardest part if finding them in your size.
