15 Mile Barefoot Run

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.

  1. Good stuff, Adam! I crossed over the 10-mile mark for the first time in the Fall of last year after barefooting it since 2008. I hope to complete a barefoot marathon this year (either an actual race or just a self-mapped run) by the time the cool months roll back around.

    BTW: Sorry to hear about the job loss. I am sure all that can be quite disheartening. I pray God blesses your search and subsequent interviews. Take care, Brother.

    • Thanks man, Go for it with the barefoot marathon, that is a great goal to have, you can definitely do it! I appreciate the kinds words about the job, I think I was ready for a change. Things happen for a reason and God has a mysterious way of working.

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.
