Morning, fellow natural runners! I've started a casual running club in the small town of Wells and so far only two others have come out with me. I'm continuing to reach out to all the runners I know in town to get them to join. The first meeting of the club was this past Sunday and my friend John was the only one to show (my friend Brian came out with me last night). He's an organic farmer north of town who goes barefoot all summer when farming. Still, first thing he said when he came up to me wearing a pair of hikers was "I suppose I should get running shoes." I was actually wearing a pair of Luna Monos just because I didn't want to scare people off seeing me completely unshod. But after just a few minutes talking to him about why I went barefoot when it came time to run he kicked off the hikers, pulled off the socks and said "OK, how far you want to go?" Later this week he told me "I'm sold" on the idea of barefoot running. Woot! Just wanted to share this weeks' accomplishment that was beyond what I had hoped. I just wanted to start a running club as a social activity but ended up infecting someone else with the barefoot running bug.
