    I'm psyched! I just ran about 3 miles barefoot in the snow and it was fine, no problem. My feet were cold for a little bit, then numb, then at about mile 1 as I warmed up they did too. The rest of the run they were cool but not cold and I could feel the ground. Many years agoI did get frostbite on the ends of my big toes, and those areas didn't hurt or stay numb either. Air temperature was about 30 degrees, and the snow was mostly packed, some powder. Now afterwards my feet just feel pleasantly tingly. Anyone else have experience running in snow?

    Good job Craig. I tried to do a run in the snow, but quit fast. I'll try again today. Get yourself on the winter challenge list.

    I hiked in the Ft. Valley trails barefoot for about 2 miles. Definitely something to get used to and this winter I'd like to try some more. We should organize a meet up for one of these. Go El Nino!
