U.S. Marine Captain uses his Vibram Five Fingers KSOs for Track, Crossfit and Boating
Patrick, a U.S. Marine Captain and Vibram Five Fingers fan, sent us the above photo and had this to say about his recent canoeing trip to the Saco River:
Love reading your blog entries. I took a trip back to Braintree, Massachusetts to visit my family. We love going canoeing up in Conway New Hampshire. We've been going to the same Saco Bound company for years now. I live in San Diego so it has been a while since I made it up there. The last time I was up, I told my Mom I was pretty sure I was going to marry the current girl I was dating. Our wedding is now in 6 months after my fiance returns from Afghanistan. My fiancé Ingrid is a Lieutenant in the Navy Nurse Corps. She gets home in about two months and we get married Jan 15, 2011.
The KSO's made awesome boat shoes for my trip. I bought my KSO's mainly for doing some track workouts and crossfit workouts. I've noticed my feet get stronger and my calves thicker as well. Throughout the trip, having dexterity in my toes allowed me to stand in the canoe with some extra balance.
Thanks for the photo Patrick and best wishes to you and Ingrid.
