Barefoot running in the rain is essential to do.

Just ran 7 barefoot miles in the rain at my lunch break,  this was the third barefoot run in the rain this week.  

And I realized barefoot running in the rain is not only fun, but essential for improving skills, not matter how much experience you have.  I actually don’t like when it’s dry for a long period of time.   It’s like running on smooth concrete for long period of time, what fun is that. You need to challenge yourself once in a while running barefoot. 

At this stage of barefoot running at times I do push off, or “toe off” when it’s dry without any complications.  But when it rains or running in wet conditions,  I need to go back to the basic blue print of emphasizing the foot lift.

Olivia's first go at soccer. When you work right next door to a Crossfit gym, what else to do on break? Happy Easter! Spring running, goodbye winter gear. Just me and my girl. 7.1 mile barefoot run. Time: 103. Pace: 8.57. A little fishing with the boys. Can't stay inside forever on this cold, rainy spring day.
