hey Ashley, I've been making the transition to VFF's and have been doing the majority of my runs in them. do you think your stress fracture could be related to overdoing it in the VFF's?

Ahhh, I got kicked off the treadmill yesterday at the my local Y for running in my socks! Felt good but I had some wierd pains. The pain was sort of all up and down my legs just after I finished (got booted) and after 1.5 miles. Not an intense pain, just never really felt it before. I'm hoping its normal for running barefoot.
