How can I as a new runner start slow when I feel like I have a running start?

What size VFFs would accommodate the greatest number of students?

The high school level anatomy and physiology class I teach is going to do a unit on running and movement. Help me figure out what size VFF's to request from a generous donor to accommodate as many of my current and future high school students possible. If you wear VFF's, I'd appreciate you looking inside and giving me your traditional shoe size (US) and VFF sizes (I think we're getting KSO's). If you have any other great foot physiology sites or books (not mentioned here or here), I'd appreciate that info, too. I just wiped out my local library. [more inside]

Help me find some minimalist footwear?

Help me find the right pair of minimalist shoes! I've been a member of a Crossfit gym for six months, which means I've been exposed to the peer pressure regarding Vibram FiveFingers. Plus, I'm starting to travel a lot (and lightly) and want a pair of running shoes that have a small footprint (heh) when packed in a suitcase. Recommendations for this recreational runner? Are Vibrams a good option? Which model? How do I size them? I'm training for next October's Portland Marathon, if that makes a difference. Bonus points for shoes available at REI (though that's not a requirement).

I'm too old to be scared of intimacy!

How do I let people love me? Will I ever outgrow my fear of intimacy? I'm in my late 20s. I'm scared of intimacy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not scared of sex. Won't think twice about a threesome, but am startled by holding hands. If a guy wants to get to know me more, compliments me, or crosses the line from being sweet to me to being sweet on me, I get super flustered. I stutter or look at my feet. I run away. [more inside]

Runners! Help me buy or make a foam roller!

I have a tight IT band and a weak medial (?) glute which is allowing my knee to move inward, moving from tweaking towards injury. I have seen the physio. Have 4 key exercises. Don't need more at the moment (thank you!). One involves rolling up and down a foam roller. I would rather cry in pain over this in the privacy of my own home. I have to do the exercises every day for 3.5 weeks so I can manage the half marathon I have planned (again, don't need advice on that, thanks - am being careful / will walk if have to etc etc) So - where in the UK Midlands in a physical shop can I buy a foam roller to roll my leg muscles with?

How to pick up my marathon training after 2 weeks of not running?

I'm training for a marathon that is taking place in just over 5 weeks. I haven't been able to run for 2 weeks due to illness and injuries. I took a week off to nurse some hip bursitis and then I came down with a flu like bug. The longest training run I've done so far has been 14 miles, and that was two weeks ago. This weekend, I am supposed to do 18 miles. To you runners out there - what do you think the best way is for me to get back on track and finish the race successfully over the next 5 weeks? My pace is around 11 minutes/mile.
