Barefoot and Vibram Fivefingers Runners at the Hartford Marathon

I ran the Hartford Marathon this morning, and after finishing had a chance to watch some of the runners come in between 4:00 and 5:00 hours. For all of you barefoot and minimalist runners out there, here’s some inspiration from a few intrepid runners who completed the race either barefoot or in Vibram Fivefingers (all 3 picures taken at about mile 26.1).  As for me – I’ll try to get a post up about my race sometime in the next few days.  Enjoy!

      Yeah, he was moving pretty gingerly at that point, but still managed to
      finish in under 5 hours. The barefoot guy seemed to be moving along just
      fine though! -Pete

  2. Oh, man, that middle dude is going to kill himself with that stride! Ouch.
