    I can tell already you'll be rocking the BF running soon. BTW the way you are starting is how it should be.

    My mother doesn't think I'm old, my children think I'm a dinosaur. Old is relative. I decided to listen to my mother and sport like a youngster so I can feel my muscles hurt and get up as an old man in the morning;)

    My son-in-law recently said that he's pretty sure I'm younger than he is. :D Maybe he can grow younger as the years go by!

    You must be verry young:happy:
    But you are right, running is not about age, it's about attitude and doing what you enjoy. Run fast, run slow, run long, run short or run backwards as long you just enjoy your activity.

    HI Random! Welcome to the BRS!! Congrats on making the transition. The hardest part is just getting past the front door. Once you're outside, you're kinda committed. :) If you have any questions, or don't know what forum to post a question in, just shoot me an email/private chat thingy. Any of us here would love to help you out! :)

    Thanks, CV.

    I decided to get used to going barefoot outside a lot, then go from there. I want to toughen up my feet. Funny thing, when I was a kid and up into my twenties, I didn't think much about transition. I hated shoes so I went barefoot as much as I could. (I didn't dare do it in high school, but I had a friend who would put her shoes in her locker once she got to school, and would walk around in socks all day. No one ever noticed..)

    I'm new to barefooting too! I'm trying to ease into it as well so i found some awesome sandals. there are quite a few minimalist sandals, but I'm biased towards Luna Sandals because they're based out of Seattle and that's home. Xerox Shoes and Unshoes also came up in my search. I have the Luna Monos and I'm obsessed. Happy barefooting!
