Cap City 1/2 Marathon, I finally broke 1:30!!

April 29th, 2017 time for my favorite half marathon again! And for the 4th time I was also accompanied by my friend and fellow barefoot runner @Yvonne. I've done it a couple prior years just myself, and several times doing the 5k before I was a barefoot runner. I've been attending this one more than any other over the years. Always such a great party after! More on that one later... :nailbiting:

This year the weather did not look good. It's always a mixed bag this time of year. Weather showed a good chance of rain, possible thunderstorms, wind, and warmish temps for this time of year (60's F). Not what I was hoping for at all!

Guinness World Record title for most barefoot half marathons run on consecutive days
By Guinness World Records

For nearly five years, Sonny Molina hasn’t stopped running; entering as many marathons in the US and Philippines as he possibly can.

However, Sonny is not your average athlete. He doesn’t lift weights, does not follow intense regimens, and doesn’t even go to a gym to train for his competitions.

Every day, he gets up and runs 3-6 miles on gravel trails and concrete paths, completely barefoot. To continue reading, please visit: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/news/2017/4/monday-motivation-sonny-molina-sole-runner-469431

No shoes, no problems for 59-year-old marathon runner
Malibu Surfside News
In 2007, marathon runner Alberto Perusset’s coach had a peculiar idea. He suggested that Perusset should try running barefoot.
