Hi friends. Haven't been on in a while. Hope everyone is doing well. This has been my first winter as a barefoot runner. I didn't think the cold weather would have such a negative impact on my running time, but it has. I have a pair of VFF's and Xero's, and had planned on using them to run regardless of the weather, but it didn't happen as consistently as I had hoped. Monday was the first time in almost a month that I got a good run in. Thankfully Spring-like weather has returned to the Tennessee Valley, and with it my desire to kick the shoes off and get out under my own power. The running is great, but recently I have started driving without shoes. I got a stern warning from my wife about the potential illegality of this, of which I am still unsure, but have continued the practice anyway. It was a little awkward at first, but I'm getting used to it. I always take my VFF's with me in case I need them. I'm basically trying to do as much as I can without shoes, short of getting thrown out of a store or something. I was just curious if there are others on here who expand their barefoot time beyond running?
