My first 100k - Born To Run Ultra Marathon

I'm surprised he caught me with half a smile on my face.
The DNF Banner at the Born To Run Ultramarathon had all sorts of excuses. My favorite was "I'm just a Grade-A Wussy." And... "Puke. Puke. Puke." There were some hardcore runners out there. Some barely hanging by a thread in the middle of the night to finish 100 miles.

Pineland Farms Trail Running Festival – 50K
By Barefoot Gentile
On Sunday, May 27, I had my first 50K with a time of 5:53:00. The race was the Pineland Farms Trail Running Festival in Maine. http://www.pinelandtrails.com/ The family and I left Saturday morning to drive up to Maine. The event was awesome, well organized, every single aid station was amazing, and just an overall fantastic atmosphere. The course was beautiful; it had you running through these massive open high grass fields that mowers cut a path just for the runners, then it takes you through trails in the woods and some gravel paths. I heard from Jason Robillard that the course was barefoot “friendly” so with that information, and the fact that I love to run barefoot, that was the plan.
I kind of envy those runners who don’t follow...
In two years I'll run a marathon. Barefoot.
Aftenposten is the largest (or second largest) newspaper in Norway. They had an article about BF and minimalistic running a couple of weeks ago -- but it was more "wow, some people mean this is good, strange" than anything else. So I decided to write a reply, a comment from someone who really knows what BFR is all about (and learning more and more every day...)
And what do you know, they put in on their frontpage. Here is the article. (Click.)
Google translated (and BTW, the part about some barefooters thinking it can cure cancer: I exaggerated to make more people think that BFR is also for them, also for so called "normal people."...

First off I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped out with Brighton Barefoot 2012. Big or small the event would not happen without you.
So, thank you to – Lucy Macklin and Mr Band for marshalling. Thanks to The Naked Ape and Vivobarefoot for their contributions to the goodie bags.
