Thought I would post a quick update regarding winter running... I live in Nebraska and the winter has been harsh, to put it midly. Not many warm days since November. I have been running on the treadmill mostly, either barefoot or in socks (the treadmill can get very warm running for 1-2 hours). Occasionally I will wear my VFFs on the treadmill too. I have gotten outside probably 6-7 times in my VFFs this winter, every time with my Injinji socks for warmth. I plan on wearing my Sprints (roughly 700 miles on them now) to the Bentonville Half Marathon this weekend and then to the Boston Marathon next month. I've been running outside more and more lately- it was ~44 degrees Saturday so I did the last ten miles of my 20 miler outside in the Sprints and loved it. I am anxiously awaiting the VFF Bikilas!!!
