I got a quick 1.25 miles (2km) around the neighborhood this morning. It is cold here, 15F/-9.4C. It was the first time I have run in my Xero hikers. They kept my feet warm, but the experience is so dull compared to barefoot. I'll be glad when winter is over. Denice got me some Running Buddy gear for Christmas. It's really neat stuff. It's a pouch for your phone, wallet, keys, etc., and a couple of small water bottles with pouches. They all have magnetic clips, and can connect directly to your waist band.
