My name is Ross and I am the owner of Run Away Shoes and this blog is a new thing for me and I hope to keep you updating on my status of a soon to be Marathoner. My history is full of triathlons, half marathons, college Cross Country, college track and even a little rugby thrown in there. So this Spring and Summer I have decided to train for both the Grand Island Marathon and a 400 to 800 meter race. The big difference is that I am going to finish the Marathon in my Vibram 5 Fingers. Yes that is right the crazy toe shoes that have become all the rage in the running world. I do not recommend people to do this everyday and believe the Vibrams are a great training tool and not a training method. Looking forward to sharing my training with the world.
