    2019 Mileage Club


    Time to post your total mileage count for 2019!

    Post below the miles (or km) you have ran, walked, and/or hiked either barefoot or minimal.

    We'll get you a shiny certificate of accomplishment!

    Check out previous years' Mileage Club Certificate recipients here: http://thebarefootrunners.org/library-articles/mileage-club.23/

    Hello!

    Here we go then! :)
    So last year I ran 2525.06 kms barefoot (1568.99 miles), and 15.99 kms in huaraches (9.93 miles), the sum being 2541 kms (1578 miles).

    Hope to increase this number next year, but we'll see! ;)

    Have a good running 2020 year!

    Just 312 miles for me.. All barefoot.
    Bit short of what I'd hoped at the beginning of the year, but I lost a good few weeks in the Summer to a niggling injury..:(
    Never mind -next year's the one to focus on now...:)

    I thought I already replied or I would've post sooner...

    2019 was a great year for me. Crushed most of my goals:
    Crushed those goals! 1484 miles running and 1615 miles total on foot including walking and hiking! Injury free!
    Well I didn't make a record 5k, but I never raced a 5k. I did make a record 10k in 38:53. I didn't break my overall record 1/2 marathon but came close, 1:27:25. Went on a couple hiking trips to the mountains and I did finally complete my goal of hiking all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks. Now I have a few to re-hike barefoot so I can say I've hiked them all barefoot... I doubt I can finish that in 2020, likely a goal for 2021.

    Continuing to improve. 1615 miles total on foot (2600 kilometers for the rest of the world). About 1486 of those miles fully barefoot. All my warm weather running is barefoot, but I had to wear shoes on some runs when it got too far below freezing. All hiking in the mountains done barefoot, and most of my walking.

    Also for 2019 I did 768 miles cycling (all but a couple rides were barefoot). And 40 miles kayaking (all barefoot too but you don't use feet).

    Towards the end of the year I set a harder goal of 1500 running. I was just barely in range of that goal, and pushed hard in December... the last couple days I was at 1480 with a 20 mile long run planned on the very last day of the year and a bad storm hit! I would've hit 1500 if not for the weather. It was snowing and blowing and couldn't run barefoot (and shoes mess me up so no longer runs in them!). I decided to do a run in shoes, but a shorter one in a more rugged trail (since I was wearing shoes might as well enjoy the trails that I can't usually do barefoot), then the 20 mile run on the first of the new year (actually a 20.20 mile run ;)).

    Goals for 2020... break 1500 just running, 1600 total on foot, and break that 1:27 half marathon time I've been chasing for a few years, and PR in the full if I can get the time off from work in the fall for the local one I often run.

    impossible to calculate my many barefoot walks ... I do not count them regularly.
    But it would be less ridiculous than my 270 kilometers (167.77 Miles) of barefoot running.

    Ridiculous ?... yes sir ! but ... I run again after two years of incapacity :cool:

    After a terrific start to 2019, I suffered an injury in March which limited my running and walking for a few months. After starting to rebound, I broke my big toe during a trail race on December 7 and had to stop running and walking for the rest of the year (and January and most of February).

    But I did end up with approximately 590 miles of barefoot & minimalist running and walking for 2019.

    Just thought I'd nudge this up the list in case any others want to note their miles for last year...:)

    I just want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Tedlet for helping me out with creating the Mileage Certificates and staying on top of this program. I seriously don't know how I would have been able to manage the time to get this done this year...or last year. He has been a huge help to me and has volunteered to work in the store setting up this year's IBRD tee shirts, etc., although that fell through for the moment. So, THANKS, Tedlet. I really appreciate you!

    I have emailed all the certificates out, and you can see the latest list here: http://thebarefootrunners.org/library-articles/mileage-club.23/

    Participation has been dwindling, but let's not give up on it. Let's encourage our fellow members to keep track of their mileage for 2020 and get this program growing again.

    Thanks Tedlet, much appreciated!

    Hopefully this year more members will report their mileage.

    Oh! :oops: Forgot about the Mileage Club! Just seeing this now, so I am late reporting :sorry:

    In 2019 I ran a total of exactly 1,500 miles. Of that, 10.75 miles were in minimalist shoes (Xero Shoes sandals/huaraches or trail shoes); the remaining 1489.25 miles were barefoot. This is a small increase in total running distance from the previous year.

    I generally don't keep track of walking distance. I am barefoot nearly 100% of the time (year-round) and I walk at least a few miles every day (I own horses and acreage). I conservatively calculate an additional 1000 miles walking for the year. I also logged a few miles horseback riding (both of us barefoot :happy:) in 2019, but that wasn't me on foot (although I have taken my equines for walks in the past...need to do that more often).
