Passed the 2000 barefoot running mark.

I ran 3 hours barefoot this morning, for 17 miles, I was hoping for 20 but was just dead tired.  I woke up at 5:15am, and was on the road right at 5:30, got home in time to get to my son’s t-ball practice and game. Thanks to my wife Erika for waking up early and getting the kids ready for practice.

I didn’t eat before this run and did feel the lack of energy, I brought two GU’s with me, and munched on a cliff bar here and there, but I got it done.   A cool thing is I passed the 2000 mile marker for barefoot miles only. (I don’t record minimal shoe miles).    This was my last long run, I will do a two week taper, then ready, or hope to be ready to run the 50k on May 27th.

  1. Hi BG,

    I just started BF. Got into MS with the Merrell TG, and loved it so much, that after reading a few books, and watching and listening to everything out there – well decided to give it a try. I am going slow, as I have gleamed from all reads etc that the time frame for distance injury free is just that. Enjoying the feel, and newfound run.
    Great blog, keep up the good work.

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.
