I plan to try to run in these about once a week for starters, see if it help strengthen my calves or help my stride.

First run this morning in the five fingers. It was an interesting sensation, not quite barefoot but definitely not in shoes. You can really feel the road/trail under your feet. Concrete was a bit harsh, I think asphalt is about as hard as you want to go in these. I got in 3 miles, and I found I like running uphill better in these. I think it is due to the fact that it is easier to land on the ball of your foot when running uphill. I averaged about 9:15 per mile, so I wasn't screaming but was being a bit cautious.
