This will be my fist ultra-marathon experience, I registered to run the Pineland Farms 50k trail run. I am going to attempt to run it barefoot. Talking to some people who have run it, the course is somewhat barefoot friendly, so I am going to give it a shot. Just by looking at some of the pictures on the Pineland Farms website the trails look very smooth, a far cry from the rocky trails here in CT. Looking forward to it, going to officially start training on Feb 6th for a 16 week training period. I will post updates on the training!
