5 Year Anniversary.

5 years ago today in the early morning hours I took a 1/2 mile barefoot run out of pure curiosity.  I will never forget the comfort and the excitement I got from that half mile barefoot run.  When I got home I got my 3 day old $140 pair of Asic Kayano’s, and any older pair of running shoes I had, put them in a bag and threw them in a Goodwill bin. After 15+ years as shod runner, i was ready to start running over again, but barefoot.. I didn’t want any shoes to fall back on during my transition, I even skipped the whole minimal thing. Close to 5000 barefoot miles and still going strong:)

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.
