    All communities ebb and flow, society and nature are not static or predictable.
    Sometimes things get quiet, thats normal, not the end of something.

    I think the detractors of barefoot running ebb and flow more than the barefoot runners! ;)

    When I first arrived in Taiwan 8 years ago, there weren't very many people running barefoot, especially marathons. This past year there have been at least 3 or 4 other people running the marathon barefoot. I just ran the Hartford Marathon and I think I was the only person running it barefoot. And people also seemed to be surprised by it too. I figured after 10 years people would be more used to it and there would be more people running barefoot, especially compared to Taiwan since they started later than the US.
