    Hello,
    new to this forum, new to barefoot running. Originally from Germany I am now in Seattle WA for three years. Here I found a great running community so I intensified my running. For ca. one year I use for training some Vibram Fife Fingers which I really love, and this weekend I did my first serious 10K with this shoes. And I started going complete barefoot for training, but This is pretty different because my feet have to adapt to the ground. But I have time.
    Attached a picture of me and my daughter as support finishing the 10K.

    Wish to find everything about my passion and lots of nice people around here.
    Greetings, the RacePunk

    Do you feel lucky, Punk? (old Clint Eastwood reference if you didn't get that growing up in Deutschland). Welcome to the crew - glad you've joined us. You are wise to take this transition to BF slowly and steadily. That will save you from injuries. I lived in Stuttgart for 2 years back in the 1990's and loved it. I hope you have as good an experience in the US as I had in Deutschland. Enjoy, und Tschuss!
