My 5-Year Anniversary
Five years ago today I posted this to Facebok,
"Started training myself for barefoot running today, ran 1/2 mile unshod. It'll take a while to go completely shoeless, but I'll get there."
So, there you go. It's my five year anniversary of runing barefoot. It's been quite the journey, a lot of learning, answering a lot of questions. I have also gotten to know really great people along the way, a lot of them through the Runners World forum, then the transition here to the BRS. I can't wait to see what the next 5 years bring me. Maybe I'll get someone else in Delaware to join me?
That is all, carry on...
Fairfield, CT Half Marathon
By Barefoot Gentile
It’s that time of year again, my favorite race has arrived. Let’s start off with training, there wasn’t any, well a little bit, I had a few 10 milers in there, but nothing like I normally would do to prepare. I had some weeks where I didn’t even run, considering the past events with my wife in the hospital and the birth of our baby girl, there was just no time to run, or just being so tired I didn’t feel like it.
My beautiful little girl Olivia – 2 months old.
Sunday morning of the race was perfect, it was about 62 degrees at 7Am. I said to myself I’m just going out to have fun, which I always do, but of course that inner competitiveness always gets to me. I didn’t have a set time to finish, but who was I kidding. I left the Garmin home for...
Zaterdag 21 juni heb ik aan de Groot Ginkelse Loop meegedaan.
Afstand: 21,1 km (halve marathon)
Plaats: Wekerom/Ede/Otterlo (de Ginkelse Heide en de bossen hier omheen)
Ondergrond: de hele afstand kun je op enkele stukken na kiezen tussen beton/ruig asfalt of zandpaden waaronder mulle ruiterpaden.
Voor mij was dit mijn 2e halve marathon, de eerste op blote voeten. In de maand er voor heb ik over dezelfde paden (woon in de buurt) 3 long runs gedaan van ruim 16, 19 en 21 km. Ik wist dus wat ik kon verwachten ook qua ondergrond (prima te doen, als je in het bos kunt lopen kun je dit ook). Mijn doel was om sneller te zijn dan de vorige keer op schoenen (2:17:53 incl flinke hongerklop=wandelen laatste 3k)....
