Wow, did that feel good! I ran 15.1 barefoot miles in 2:17:14, and still had a lot in the tank! It was 43 degrees when I left for my run at 10:00am, just perfect weather to run long and barefoot. This is what happens when you are unemployed and like to run, say goodbye to the standard long run on the weekends. My wife has Fridays off from work so that gives me time to hit the roads, or trails and go long.
I lost my job of 9 1/2 years on January 31st 2012. As of now I am unemployed, a stay home dad, job searching, and running! This is the first time I am not working since I was 13 years old, and it’s a difficult transition right now, especially having kids and a family, but I am staying positive. To be honest I was ready for a change, I was extremely stagnant in my last job and ready for new challenges.
