    I've been barefoot running for a couple of years. Barefoot trail running for 1 1/2 years. I pride myself on staying focused as I know this is critical to avoiding injury on technical barefoot runs. I've managed to avoid any real injuries up until now. For a moment a few days ago, I lost focus, not on the trail though. I was in my bedroom, putting a shirt on and walking across my room. I kicked my bedpost and that was that. My wife will not let me hear the end of it...

    Thanks to all for your sentiment :)

    Oh that hurts! I split my big toe open on a metal-based footstool a few months ago but nothing on the road/trail yet either!

    Never fails, the injuries

    Never fails, the injuries always rear their ugly heads close to home, or at home.

    TJ, I can run, but only barefoot. Any footwear is too constricting. Unfortunatley, its been a little too cold to barefoot for me lately so I'll probobaly just run the mill for a week or so.

    Ouch, I've done the same, my pinky-toe versus my wife's luggage. Not fun!!! Good luck with the recovery.

    For me the kitchen has been the most dangerous environment for my feet. Much riskier than the trail, for sure. Heal well!

    I get hurt in the bathroom

    I get hurt in the bathroom the most around the shower and tub. How about huaraches and Vaseline, E? Will those work for you in winter-time?
