I also didn't have time. I have two toddlers, a wife, a house, an acre of land, a job with a long commute, etc. etc. That's what was so nice about the couch to 5K (C25K) program. It starts off with 20 minutes of walking/jogging, and who can't squeeze 20 minutes somewhere. Over the past 7 months I've been slowly expanding that time out. I gave up things that didn't matter--internet surfing, video gaming, my motorcycle, etc. and replaced them with things that do...
No one cares if you're stylish while panting and sweating on the road. Worry about fit and function first, don't worry about the looks of the shoe. As far as the barefoot running movement, the jury's out--it's something everyone has to try to see if it works for them. Don't let people with The Answer try to convince you one way or another.

So over the past seven years I have worked 3rd shift in a biotech manufacturing plant. I dragged my tired butt into work in jeans or even sweatpants, changed into scrubs, and went to work. There was no style, just survival. Well, after all that hard work, I finally got a 1st shift position. Same work, so a majority of my day is spent in scrubs, but I have a lot more meetings and brushes with People That Matter. I stopped wearing the orange Chuck Taylors I special...
