I won the race in a sprint during the last mile, a memory I will never forget.

I'm having a strange year.  The body is far from perfect, but occasionally things come together.  I think I only got a few more races left before I give up on my five fingers.

I tried on the evos. The toe box seems to small for a minimalist shoe. I don't think they are worth $160.  Running as much as you do, I think your are going to have difficutly finding a reliable minimalist shoe.

Awesome job on the race. Very inspirational stuff.

Thanks for the inspiration. The race report was great... I need more reports like this to get me pumped as I train for my first Ultra.
