    Hi, Virginia BF and minimalist runners! I was curious as to where in VA we all are, since it seems everyone around me is stunned by the sight of my VFF's, so Idoubt anyone else is nearby. I live near Charlottesville, work in Richmond. I've been running in my VFF's for a whopping month now, too big a wuss to go barefoot. Where's everyone else?

    Wow, lutzb, that's quite a commute! My folks live in Hendersonville, NC and sometimes DH and I drive down to Greensboro and then take 40 west. It's a looooong drive ...

    C-ville to Richmond is a good distance itself. I traveled up and down 64 a lot when I was younger. I'll keep my commute :)

    Live and play around Richmond. Spend some time in WV on the rivers & trails, too. Always get lots of comments whenever out in the VFF, but starting to see more and more of them all the time.

    I am near Hampton, but we are moving in 2 weeks so I'll be leaving the Virginia chapter. I hope some of you can get together and run!

    I live in Poquoson, near Hampton. Wendy, its a bummer to lose a solid barefooter like yourself. I'm sure you'll start a movement at your next location as well though :)

    I'm in Herndon for another month, then moving into DC. Just started running barefoot about a month ago. My first pair of VFF's just arrived and have yet to run in them.

    I'm in Alexandria, VA. Started running barefoot around March, then got sick for a while and stopped. Trying to work up my mileage again!

    Hey guys and girls.



    I live in Stafford which is near Fredericksburg although I'm familiar with the whole metro area north of me because I grew up there.



    It's too bad there don't seem to be more resources for barefooters; I'd really like to get together with some on the regular.
