As a new member, let me introduce myself:

I'm a 34-year-old woman, living in Belgium. While training with my dog (dog agility) I started to land on my forefoot when sprinting. A personal trainer told me that was really bad, so I turned back to heelstriking. When I saw myself on video, it seemed that I was struggling to move, while I thought I was moving fast. I gave all I had, but it still looked like I was running in water...
A few months ago, I learned about barefoot running and the mid-/ forefoot strike and I bought my first pair of minimalistic shoes, Invo-8's Bare Grip 200. A few weeks ago I bought Fivefingers (Spyridons), and I'm so addicted to them, I already consider buying an extra pair. I use them mostly for dog agility, but love to wear team all the time. Everything just fell into place, this way of moving feels much more natural! I run faster now, with more grip then I ever had with "normal" shoes. And I really enjoy the contact with the surfaces I run and walk on. Walking in the woods is really walking IN the woods now, instead of ON the woods...
