Great hike at Parma Park with the Japhster. The vibrams are a ton of fun for exploring and running. Even on pavement actually. I don’t miss the cushion and find my posture and stride are improved. It feels kind of like wearing racing flats that I used to wear during track races in HS. I’m looking forward to experiencing the world on my own two feet instead of from the saddle for a change. More hikes, climbs and runs to come. In theory, I think it’ll be nice to take a break from cycling… although as soon as was back on a trail hiking I started thinking, “I wonder what line I would take around this corner? Think I could clear this section in my middle ring? This sure is some sweet singletrack….”.
