I STILL haven't made a shoe decision for the winter. There are a few potentials but there is one last store I plan to visit with Hi-C in hopes of getting some advice from seasoned runners. The kind who have been through a few winters. Today was struggle because of the temperature: 1 celcius. Not really that bad but it felt like -5 with wind chill. It was the first day this season that I thought my choice of only one layer on top, no hat, no gloves, may have been foolish. The good news is that my feet were still comfortable. Hypothesis: temperature will not be the ruin of the fivefingers but MOISTURE will be (that is why everyone hates the word moist). Once the snow/freezing rain falls (melts, becomes slush) I will be ruined. I will get the black feet of frost bite.
Fun update: while running today a cyclist passed me and yelled "Yay barefoot runners!"
