Barefoot running, Vibrams, and winter traction

Posted by on Dec 28, 2009 | No Comments

So far, I’ve done about four snowy runs barefoot and three in Vibrams.  The results- Vibrams suck for traction on trails.  Barefoot offers surprisingly good footing, but is difficult when the temps drop below 25 or so.  The positive about Vibrams… they really force you to work on trail running skills.  There’s nothing quite as scary as flying down a hill at a 5:00/mile pace on what are essentially ice skates. 

The winter experimentation continues…
