Walking in Gloves

I said I'd let you know how it goes, but Justin has written up a review of the Vibram Five Fingers that can pretty much stand up as my own. Take a look.

Five Fingers have helped me be a kid again

That's the most important part. I haven't gotten yet where I wear them much on my morning walks. Frankly, the sensory explosion is a bit overwhelming. I like to focus on the dogs, enjoy the morning. So, the deadening effect of padded running shoes is OK. However, I love to use them at the gym, and then my favorite is the shorter evening walks. It's like a treat. Last week, for instance, Bea had already taken the dogs out for the evening walk when I got home. I tossed on the Vibrams, tracked her and the dogs down, and continued on the walk. It's quite a pleasurable sensation I highly recommend.

Since Covid killed my Cabo San Lucas vacation-rental business in 2021, this is my day job. I can't do it without you. Memberships are $10 monthly, $20 quarterly, or $65 annually. Two premium coffees per month. Every membership helps finance this work I do, and if you like what I do, please chip in. No grandiose pitches.

    Thanks for the link. They really are a treat for your feet. It is humorous to me that the treat is basically "going barefoot". What an ingenious idea.

    I like going on neighborhood walks in mine and would really like to try a hike in them. When I finally get that chance, I'll be sure to update on the experience.

    I plan to start tossing up some food photos again soon.

    In fact, I've been trying to work out ideas to make this blog primarily (and officially) about Ev Fitness, only with a sharp edge and big attitude, i.e., I might write "fuck" a lot, and stuff like that .
