Alright. Maybe Vibram FiveFingers aren’t the best choice. Molly, the Road Runner Sports employee, confirmed that I basically wasn’t ready after I had asked if they would be good for me. Given my not-so-stellar results from running on one of the four treadmills in the store, I guess FiveFingers wouldn’t really help me run better.

So I ended up getting another pair of Brooks. Not as exciting—but I suppose not as hideous, either.

Why can’t you be a normal person and get Nikes?
