Buntekuh 5.3km Fun Run
I was nervous leaving work late - would I make it in time for the race or not? I had all my stuff with me: not having to carry running shoes really makes packing for events much easier. Still, I was jittery and keept checking my watch every time the train got delayed.
My new Invisible Shoes were making the soles of my feet sweat, which I noticed was softening the plantar skin - not good. I took them off on the train and hoped the walk to the race would dry them out in time.
On arrival, the kid's 1.9km race was getting ready to start. I had 30 minutes to the gun. I got changed and warmed up.

Canton, Ohio Marathon
By fredvp71, Now.k.a., "Barefoot Fred"
Hello BRS! Just a quick race report on a barefoot marathon (my first) I completed on Sunday, June 17 in Canton, Ohio. I will keep it brief, but feel free to comment or message me for more details if wanted.
Some people on this site are amazing runners and complete barefoot marathons 6 months after first starting. I have had a much slower process - my first year, I ran a 5K barefoot (and was badly injured from running in freezing temperatures). The second year, I was happy to finish a 10K. Last year, wait for it, a half marathon, and this year a full marathon!
This marathon was the first in Canton but was attended...
