I have not been waking up in the mornings to run, mostly because I haven't been going to sleep at night. Yesterday my new FiveFingers came, and I was quite excited to try them out.

This adorable little girl was my running companion. We ran the entire length of our street!

These are my new shoes:

I'm not entirely sure yet how I feel about them. They did feel really good to run in, but the seam where the fabric meets the shoe on the right side rubbed a great big terrible hole in my foot. Not even a blister- a hole. It hurts. Bad. But I did run better- I stood straighter, knew immediately every time my form started to suffer, and I ran faster than I usually do. It was only 2 miles. We'll see how they do when I up the mileage. But, in the interest of saving my big toe, I don't think I'll be wearing them for the half marathon on the 25th.
