    Just had a really fun barefoot run to celebrate IBRD on Siesta Key with 8 folks in our group and many more barefoot folks on the beach.

    (Siesta Key Chapter meet up before our IBRD run)

    Report
    2nd Annual International Barefoot Running Day-Florida-Siesta Key

    Soon it will be hot, humid and less fun to run. But, it was perfect today as eight of us gathered to celebrate IBRD on Siesta Key. The gulf was heaven blue, the sand was crystal white, dolphins played in the waves and we got to run barefoot with new friends in min shoes. Chris G and I have enjoyed a chapter run almost every first Sunday since last year’s IBRD. In this year’s event we ran 9 miles with some walking breaks and a refreshing beer interval. Looking forward to next year already!

    Ottawa had 3 participants. BF_Rick, his daughter (Mélisande) and myself. We did a 2km loop around Parliament Hill. We ran over a variety of surfaces (concrete, asphalt, gravel, wood stairs, and limestone) Rick in just starting to incorporate BF running into his lifestyle. Melisande was a natural -- As Rick said "Oh, to have young feet again!".

    Here's a shot of Rick and Rod along the Rideau Canal. You have to believe me that we were barefoot ;)
