    Principal 5K
    By Tyler J L


    As some of you may know, I'm doing the Principal 5K as part of the Des Moines IMT Marathon. Since it's going to be pretty cool the morning of the 5K, I'm going to put my insulated Vibram FiveFingers to good use since I don't want my toes to freeze.

    Or you could start out in socks and take them off once your feet get warmed up. Either way, have a great run!

    So I did the Principal 5K today I started out wearing my insulated Vibram FiveFingers and did some warm ups. Afterwards I decided to take them off. There was also someone else who was barefoot AND shirtless. I ran some parts of it and some parts I walked. I ran to finish it off. My time all together was 40 minutes 3 seconds. I'm proud of myself
