Well the trip to the UK went well. I went barefoot for the first night I got there (last Thurs) but only went 1 mile. The sore spot was better, but the pavement was all wet and littered with small pebbles and sticks. I decided then and there to switch over to the Vibrams for all the rest of my runs on that trip. I got to visit Bath, Stonehenge, and Lands End over the weekend.
