So I’ve decided to take on the Melbourne Marathon this year. I was meant to do it last year but procrastinated till no end and eventually did not register for it as I felt I wasn’t ready.
This year however, I am going to make that commitment since I haven’t ran in my Vibram Five Fingers in any officially organised run. Vibram &^*#^%#*% what you say?
Check out the pics below
So yes I know a lot of you must be thinking…”ARE U FRIGGIN CWWAAYYYYZZZZIIIIEEE???!!!”
Maybe I am, but I have been running in them for almost a year now and I think I have transitioned into them well already.
Here is the plan so far
- Mother’s Day Classic 8km – 8 May
- Run Melbourne 10km – 17 July (done the half marathon before but found it boring coz u have to run 2 laps of the same course…zzzzzz)
- and finally The MELBOURNE MARATHON 42km – Hopefully I make it lol
but with the races I might instead rely on another pair of VFFs I’ve got.
They are called the Vibram Bikilas…what’s the diff you say? Well they are more “running” specific esp on asphalt 🙂
Here have a look 🙂
