The Canadian Death Race -The 'Views' From A Barefoot Runner'
By Barefooting Bob

I had truly intended for this post to go out very quickly after we finished the Death Race, but everytime I sat down to start writing I started thinking about Lost Soul which I ran last weekend (report to come hopefully very quickly). I was on such a runner's high right after the race that I could not sit still long enough to start typing and when I did, my mind would drift towards thinking about my upcoming 100 miler. So for this I applogize, especially to Wendy as I know she has been chomping at the bit to read this. So here we go........

One Bare Foot to Another at the Barefoot Runners Society
By Happysongbird

If you are the only barefoot runner in town, you don’t want to add to the stigma by talking to yourself all the time. :) Even the least verbal people seem to have a desire to talk about their passionate pursuits, but a group-of-one doesn’t work. Books are great to get started; motivation has to have life in your inner core; however, conversation with fellow enthusiasts brings insight and energy to a new level. That is why I ventured to join The Barefoot Runners Society, my first ever online forum.

I proceeded cautiously, my knowledge of forums coming mostly from news reports of stalkers. I tried a couple of different websites in the beginning, but found this one to be the best combination of friendly and...

I was approaching my 55th birthday, and although I have been running on and off since my early 20s, hadn't done so with any regularity since a hamstring injury sidelined me 10 years ago. Over the course of that decade, I gained a lot of weight, began to feel physically and mentally depressed, and worse, was facing a future that was certain to include either heart disease, diabetes, both, or worse. I have a family history of all these things, on both sides. And my father died of heart disease...at 55. Nothing like a cold slap in the face as I approached that birthday.

Not to bore you all with the details, but I made a...
