1. What styles VFFs do you currently have?  Want?
I have the KSO's in grey/green. Want a pair of treks and already want the Bikele's
2. How did you first hear about VFFs? Saw them in City Sports
3. How long have you had your VFFs? 2 months
4. What do you enjoy doing in your VFFs? Everything I love them . I am currentlytraining for my 1st marathon - NYC .but dont want to start using them for running until after that so as to learn the form corectly with no pressure to do mileage etc. But I am so excited for my 1st run post marathon without trainers - (sorry sneakers - I am an exiled Englishman)
5. Do you have any funny stories about people seeing you in them? So many people on the subway I catch starring at them - it makes me laugh
6. Have you ever spurred anyone else to get VFFs? I am trying to persuade my entire running club to try them
7. What is your job, and will they let you wear VFFs to work? I work mostly from home so I am typically barefoot in the house but wear them out for most other occasions
8. Anything else you'd like to share about yourself? Not yet - I'm shy - let me ge to know you all better!!!
9. How'd you hear about birthdayshoes.com? Googling for reviews of VFF's

No worries. It's take time to transition VFFs to such mileage.

So I finished my 1st and quite possibly last marathon - we will see how I transition to VFF/BF running. I did it in 4.29 which whilst way outside my goal time of 4hrs - I ws not disappointed with as I realised early on due to both crowding and my underestiimating the hilly nature of the course that this would be unrealistic . I also then alowed myself time to stop and chat to friends and family. Take photos with my kids etc . I also started to cramp from about mile 18 - and as this had never happened to me before on any training runs I was unsure of what to do - so I hobbled through the last 6 miles or so but nonetheless I had a great time and loved the feeling of being part of such an incredible event.

Also thanks to all the kind words of welcome from one and all
