20K Road Race

I ran a 20k road race on Sunday 2/12/2012.  It was a good way to kick off my training for the 50K, and start running long again.   This 20k was the first time I ran in the double digits since September 2011, it felt good great as well.   I wasn’t out there for time or to race it all, just out for a nice long run, I came in at 1:48:23.  It was 18 degrees at the start and windy,  I wore my Runamoc Dash Lites without socks and had no issues.  During the waiting period for the start my toes were cold, but after 10 minutes of running they warmed up and felt great throughout the run.   These shoes are great, but nothing beats running barefoot.  Overall it was a good week of running, I got in 30 miles for the week.

On a side note I read a post today by Barefoot Rick on his facebook page that he ran 6 miles in 3 inches of snow, barefoot.  His tolerance is amazing,  must be a great feeling to never have to rely on footwear to run.   He inspires me when it comes to winter barefoot running.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.
