Got some new shoes yesterday for my birthday. They are called Vibram FiveFingers. I got the black TrekSport model. Size 45 (European sizing). For years Vibram has been a leader in producing soles for shoes. But these minimalist shoes are designed to help you walk or run the way God designed you to do: not heel first.

I wore them most of the day yesterday. This morning I woke up to soreness in some leg muscles, which is very normal, since these shoes cause me to work muscles I typically don’t use. You can learn all about them at the FIVEFINGERS WEBSITE.

I don’t know how some people are so creative as to come up with so many good tweets so many times a day. I’m doing good to tweet once a day. I try to tweet something encouraging or spiritually challenging, but occasionally a personal tweet gets sent out. I got a kick out of this and hope you do too:
Thanks, Mark. 😉
