    Just wanted to say a quick "hey there!"

    I started running about 10 years ago, and after having some ankle and shin problems switched to minimalist footwear (VFFs) back in 2009! I've always been one of just a few in minimalist footwear in my local running community, so it's nice to finally find similar runners. =)

    Hi Bea! What part of Florida are you in? I'll be in the Sarasota area in a couple weeks, I'm looking forward to some spring like weather!

    A couple hours further south, in Naples. After a really rainy winter so far (darned El Nino), we're just now getting some beautiful weather. Hopefully it holds out and your trip is gorgeous. This really is the best time of the year down here.

    Welcome, Bea! Glad to have you with us. There are a lot of full-time barefooters here, but many of us run in minimal shoes either some or all of the time. Have fun!

    Florida, the idea of being able to kick your shoes off year round is enviable. Welcome and enjoy your VFFs and when you are ready try a little BF and see what you think. Either way lots of good folks with good mojo here.
