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 reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
