    7.4 miles in the 36th running of the Lilac Bloomsday 12K . ............................................................................................................................................. http://thebarefootrunners.org/pages/IBRD/ .... .......................................................................................................................................................... ........................................................... The Barefoot Runners Society (BRS) is proud to announce the 2nd annual International Barefoot Running Day™ (IBRD™) on 6 May 2012. ..... After our smashing success last year, we hope to double the turnout this year. IBRD is a grassroots, inclusive effort to promote barefoot running as a healthy and viable way to run. It’s also about having fun and delighting in the idea of running barefoot with thousands of people worldwide on the same day. <http:> [http://www.thebarefootrunners.org/ibrd/ibrdposter_lg.jpg]</http:>

      Well, I wasn't man enough to run my marathon BF.  I did use my Vibrams, though.

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.


      Half Fanatic #846

        I ran BF the 5th, then saw the IBRD post later, so I sandwiched an "IBRDRD" (...rest day) between two seven milers BF - hope that's OK!

         

        Actually, I'm sorry I missed it - Could've done some running with a bunch of barefooters near the beach if I had paid more atttention!  

        I can do 440 in 220            90% of running is half mental            I ran half of my last race on my left foot!

         


        Petco Run/Walk/Wag 5k

          We had a local BF event on Sat 5/5. I got a couple of miles in with the group. Most did more than I because I am very slow these days (slower than ever). We would have had a larger group but multiple race events in the area used up all the parking which reduced our turnout.

          History: blessed heart attack 3/15/2008; c25k july 2008 first 5k 10/26/2008 on 62nd birthday.

            Since I felt bad about missing this last year (due to recovering from a tough race) and even though I ran relatively long on Saturday, I recorded an easy 2.9 miles on IBRD.
