Here’s an update from Chad, who previously ran a marathon in his black KSO fivefingers, and recently ran the Charlotte, North Carolina’s Hit the Brixx 10K and a 5K in his grey and orange fivefinger Classics — pushing his son in a jogger:

Hi Justin,

Just another note to let you know how my running is going. This morning I pushed my son James in our baby jogger (somewhat of a misnomer, as he’s now five years old, four feet tall, and weighs sixty pounds) at Charlotte’s Hit the Brixx, where I did both the 10k (50:49) and the 5k (23:02). It’s a little hard to see, but I wore my orange and gray VFF Classics with black Injinji socks. That’s me with the white hat, white singlet, and yellow BOB stroller.

We had a great time at the race, and James ran in his first fun run, albeit with regular running shoes. Maybe this is the beginning of a long love a running for him, I hope.

Sincerely,

Chad

Nice times, Chad!

I’m just learning to walk properly while pushing a stroller (harder than it looks it seems! Or maybe I’m just clumsy), to say nothing of running.

Great to hear about your son getting into running, too!
