Officer Thomas Giunta 5K Memorial Road Race By BFGD
Finished my first official 5K race yesterday. I was a bit anxious, but excited, and my wife ran the race also. She passed me at about 2.5 miles on a hill and she greeted me at the finish. She is great on hills! Only one person spoke to me about about bare feet, and asked if I had read "Born to Run" (which I haven't, but I've definitely heard about it). I did get a lot of looks though, some curious, some confused.
It was cold, so I wore my SNOX socks to the starting line, and put them in my pockets about 10 minutes before we started. I had a sweatshirt but ran with it tied around my waist.
In spite of the cold, it was a GREAT first experience of running in a crowd. Looking forward to more! Might never have happened without being motivated here, so thanks to all barefooters here!...

Meet the couple who ran 6500 miles across South America – "Minimal" By Telegraph.co.uk
Our thermometer read 32F (0C). A blizzard tore at our faces. We could barely see the opposite bank of the metallic slick of water that rushed menacingly past us. Our only option was to swim.
It was July 28 2012 and the sound of the Olympic gun was resonating through the streets of London. However, my husband David and I were standing at Cape Froward, the southernmost tip of South America, after having forded four glacier-fed rivers, before starting our expedition: running the whole length of the continent.
We would travel 6,504 miles (10,467km) through five countries in 15 months. Starting in Chile, we would run the entire “Carretera Austral”– a 1,000-mile (1,609km) road – through temperate rainforest and under snow-capped mountains. To continue reading, please visit:...
So I went to that "other" place to wish them a happy birthday today, but apparently, it's more like a good-bye day for me. Apparently, they shut down all of their forums and created Facebook pages to replace some of them...not the barefoot running forum though.
