College Runners and Vibrams

I wonder how many kids like this guy are out there...

Junior Daniel Horseman was fifth in the non-Division I runners, finishing the 8K course in 27:59, setting a personal best for the second-straight week and in his eight year cross-country career.

'I was pretty excited,' Horseman said. 'I've been working hard and I guess the training is finally paying off.'

"After an injury all of last year, Horseman changed his running techniques and style.

"'I've been doing a lot of minimal running and using Vibram Five Fingers shoes,' Horseman said. '(Minimal running) teaches how to run barefoot which creates a more natural run.'"
