    I recently discovered that the entire time I have been running I've had asthma and that really limited what I could do. I had no idea until just recently. Now I can use this little inhaler and wow - I can run way better and without being completely miserable. It also seems to help my feet not get so irritated from running barefoot. I guess a lot of my pain in my feet was caused by asthma....

    [ATTACH] Sunday I ran my first full marathon barefoot. After finishing six barefoot half marathons last year I was finally able to train up enough to make it through a full. This race was in Alabama and was half on paved golf cart paths and the last half on roads. My feet held up pretty well but I did have some issues with my quads at the very end. The hard concrete paths may have had...

    Recently I completed two more unshod half marathons at the Texas Threesome race series in Texas. It would have been three but there was tornado activity so the middle race got canceled.

Bad pitted asphalt for much of the...

    I finished my first barefoot half marathon yesterday. It was 35F degrees and 21F degrees windchill. I started off wearing my Sockwa shoes (2mm stack height) with some warm socks for the first two miles to get my blood flowing good. After that I ran barefoot(unshod/skin to ground). I use this strategy a lot on very cold days. I will often loose feeling in my feet pretty quick if I don't start...
