    Hey everyone, I'm from the NC chapter, but I thought this would be a better place to ask this question. Any of you BFRs planning on running the half marathon or marathon barefoot. It would be nice to have a meetup!

     I'm running both races Larry

    I'm running both races Larry but I don't know about doing them bare. For me that will depend on the weather and my training up to that point. I gotta be a little more careful when I have two races in two days but I'll be there and I know there's another thread running around here somewhere where a few others in here said they'll be running one of the races that weekend as well.

    Larry, You can find the

    Larry, You can find the thread here.

    I'm doing the Goofy Challenge like Jimmy is and I think I will probably be ready to do the half-marathon barefoot but definitely not the marathon. We'll have to see. I was thinking about this the other day. A cool place to meetup would be the Rain Forest Cafe near the Animal Kingdom on Saturday evening following the half-marathon. Either there or the T-Rex cafe in Downtown Disney. I can do some recon on some less theme-like places if neither of those are interesting. I just thought they'd be convenient. Either way those running the full marathon the next day would have to take it easy on the beers. :) An alternative would be to meet up the evening of Friday Dec 7th. That way if we did have a couple of beers we'd only be running the half the next day so it wouldn't be so bad.

    What do ya'll think? I'll be staying at the Fields of Green Resort on Disney property. My mobile number is 904-446-8762.



    Semper Fi,

    Warren

    Wow! A Disneyworld run? How

    Wow! A Disneyworld run? How cool is that. My husband and I have annual passes. I can go run in-between rides for practice. Lol.

    I just started barefooting. Doing great, though. Do you think I could run most of the 13.1 miles by January? That might be pushing it, but I'll give it a try. At least it's something to work towards. Right?

    If you can't run it by then,

    If you can't run it by then, I'm sure you could walk it. Most people take part in these kinds of events for the atmosphere.
