I ran a 3k road race this past weekend. I entered as part of my training for a 5k I am doing next month. I didn't really know what to expect, but I had fun.
I was hoping to run it in about 18 min. But I did it in 16:11, pretty slow still. At the same time, I realize I have much training to get to the condition I should be in.
There was a 10k right before the 3k...and the guy who won the 10k also won the 3k in 9:29. He is a beast from Boone, NC.
I was the only person I saw in VFFs. Black KSOs. Many stares. It even prompted a group of runners in front of me to discuss the merits of minimal footwear.
No one talked to me about them at the race. However, at my kid's soccer game after the race I got some delighted comments. :}
Also, my wife just bought a pair of blue KSOs. She looks super cute in them and is having alot of fun in them so far. ( She really hated mine at first...hehehe)
