The World’s First Ever five fingers 5k, sponsored by Mahoney’s was held this past weekend in Johnson City, TN. It was open to all runners, regardless of footwear. However, the winner was wearing vibram five fingers and finished the race in 17:33. vibram five fingers fan, Nestor, ran in the race and shared this excellent report with us:

Hi Annayy, still waiting on those links! Come on, I really want these!

Yo – Annayy is definitely a spammer. I own VFFs and have spent about 8 months running in them. They did give me a stress fracture in my right foot because I ran too much without allowing my foot to get acclimated. Anyhow, if you are looking for real links and real information, let me know and I can send those to you.
This spammer is most likely not going to be responsive.

Sorry, I was being sarcastic! Each time she posted the number of links went up. This one has 11 links!!
I probably wont be interested in these but have been reading up on treadmill running technique. One guide suggests running barefoot for a few minutes, which naturally makes you run more fore footed, to see what it feels like.

Haha, oh I see. Hard to tell sentiment in text :)
Your technique seems great. Like I said, the VFFs tend to cause more injuries that running benefits.
