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.

My sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
