Minimalist Running begins

Stopped at TC Running on Thursday and checked out their trail shoes. Kurt D. assisted and I ended up getting a pair of Saucony ProGrid Peregrines. These are kind of an intro to minimalist running since they weigh around 9 oz although they do only have a 4 mm drop versus the normal 10 to 20 mm drop. They fit and feel like a slipper. I probably went farther than I should have yesterday but I didn't have any issues, actually I was surprised as the lower heel didn't seem to matter at all.

Here is what they looked like at the start of the run
Here they are after 5 miles
