Just kidding. I hope no one takes offense. I've lived in West Virginia most of my life so I think I'm justified in joking about it. Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Kevin and I live in Morgantown, WV. I am new to barefoot running but have been running in Vibram Five Fingers for several years. In fact, I have run five full marathons, four of which were in the VFF's and two of which were in one weekend last fall. This year I plan to run two full marathons in one weekend barefoot to raise money for "Soles for Souls." I'm used to running in the VFF's so I'm still doing mileage in them while toughening up the bottoms of my feet. Any tips to speed up the process?
