I just want to say how inspiring this is and although I am not as fast I am now finding I am achieving great results.

I do not know about Josh but I feel almost invincible.

I have to say it was not any easy transition but I can now say it is worth it having knocked 10 mins of my PB wearing a pair of Xeros

Congratulations, Josh! That's a great time and I love hearing about folks running healthy races in minimal shoes.

I'm also really happy to hear from runners who are proud of their race even after the tragic events in Boston. An awesome post all around!

i only always run with VFF and i must say that the vibram classic will not be too comfortable for long distances whilst the lontra is extremely comfortable for long distances. so it'd be interesting to know which ones Josh used

Thank you all for the kindness and best of luck in all of your minimalist running endeavors!

For those that were curious, my VFF shoe of choice is the Bikila LS. I've done many half-marathons, a couple full, and a 12hr in them and they have felt great at all the distances.

I look forward to bringing you all more VFF success stories in the future. Thanks again.

It looks as if he is wearing the Bikala LS VFF. I bought them for running too but the left foot has a weird bump in the ball of the foot that causes crazy pain in my foot. So, I'm sticking with the Spyridons for running.

Congrats Josh! I host a podcast devoted to evolutionary running and living, and would love to talk with you on an upcoming episode about your experience running if VFF's. Let me know if we can talk. Go to for more info.
