    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:>

    just seein' if being in shape from winter ski racing in those days was good enough to run annual marathons

    since 1977 and triathlons of all distances to IM since 1978 without that much, if any, training. Yippee, it was. 

      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. - S.J.


      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 don't always roll a joint, but when I do, it's usually my ankle" - unk.                          Run like the winded

         I ran half my last race on my left foot!                   "Frankly autocorrect, I'm getting a bit tired of your shirt"


        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.

          2014 goals: keep on running! Is there anything more than that?

          Complete the last 3 races in the Austin Distance Challenge, Rogue 30k, 3M Half, Austin Full

          Break the 1000 mi barrier!

          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.
