    Who else is gonna be there? I'm doing the 50K in my Luna Roots Origen sandals. Just too much gravel to try the whole thing unshod although a lot of the trail is just nice dirt. Will be the farthest I've ever run!

    Was a great experience! The sandals performed great. Learned a lot about balancing hydration with salt and calories.

    Congrats to you! I'm happy for you...and a little jealous. I always found that I learned a lot about myself when I pushed the distance. I so wish I was able to get back out there and do it again.

    Would love to know more. Did you get any pictures?

    I'll put together a post with pictures for sure!

    I gotta say I could never have done distances like this if I hadn't gone unshod. Taking the shoes off has taught me so very much about the art of running.
