Before we get into the full race report I need to preface this report with the fact that I have never run a trail barefoot, ever.

I had never done a race barefoot either so I am not sure what I was thinking…..oh now I remember this was Kali’s idea!

Dear Health & Fitness Professionals: Namaste! Greetings from India....
The 4th Annual International Barefoot Running Day™ will be held on Sunday, May 4, 2014!
It's that time of year again! Time to start the 2014 IBRDTee Shirt DESIGN Contest!
The International Barefoot Running Day T-shirt design contest has begun! The contest idea was inspired by the threads with awesome barefoot sayings and some great foot print designs added to the Zazzle store shirts. In order to get the word out about 2014 International Barefoot Running Day and give us some awesome shirt choices, we are going to have a contest. If you've got design skills, then we'd like to see what you can come up with!
Have you heard the recent buzz that’s going on in the barefoot running world about the barefoot 10K global charity event that is taking place all around the world this year?
Amis Sans Shoes (Friends Without Shoes for the non-Franglais) is a community page on Facebook that is asking barefoot runners, walkers, and hikers from all around the world to meet up, run together and share their experiences with the rest of the world, all in support of international aid charity CARE International.
CARE International reached more than 82 million people last year, working in 87 countries, implementing long-term programmes to fight poverty, responding to humanitarian emergencies, and advocating for policy change to improve the lives of the poorest people.
