Barefoot Runner

    What a year this has been! First of all, I met my goal of 50+ barefoot miles a week on average totalling 2,604.93 barefoot miles for the year (15,447.65 total BF miles since 10/21/03). Not only did I run everyday barefoot outside in all types of weather this year, but tomorrow (January 1) will be my 888th consecutive day of running barefoot without missing a day!

     

    I ran 8 marathons and one ultra of 40+ miles, all barefoot. (In January, I am planning on running my 50th barefoot marathon and my 68th overall.)

     

    Also, of even greater importance, we raised several thousand dollars in 2009 for the Free Wheelchair Mission through Soles for Souls. Because of generous benefactors, we were able to help scores of folks up off the ground and into a place of dignity (for more info, see http://barefootrunner.org/fwcm/fwcm.htm).

     

    And, I am appreciative of the opportunities to speak at various venues this past year about barefoot running and why I continue to do so. (My next opportunity will be at the Waco Miracle Match Marathon on Jan. 30.)

     

    Here is a complete review of 2009 including more stats and media opportunites.

      Way to go, Rick!  Hope you're able to run barefoot every day this year.

       

      I started barefooting in 2009 and accumulated 268.3 miles (including one 5k and one 10k race).  I've already started out 2010 with a 2.5 mile run and have a 10k trail race scheduled for tomorrow morning.
