    I met Rick Roeber when back in the USA and jumped into the Kansas City marathon in fall 2013 ... and I met this great guy bare footing the race. His winsome personality and a fun conversation led me to start thinking ... but the idea got shelved with the bustle of life. I pulled the idea off the shelf (the idea of moving to running just bare foot, instead of just occasionally) a few months ago. I think Ken Bob's site directed me to this great community.

    Google - I like to get "into new things" as others have mentioned, and found the site after searching for minimalist running forum...or something similar. While I haven't done any BF running for two years, and any minimalist running for a year, I still come here because the information is generally balanced, and helpful.

    Like everyone else - Google. I was looking for BF running videos after reading reading the book by Michael Sandler and Jessica Lee - came across some really good ones by Skye Mangram. I joined BFRS but never really visited the site. Came across it again about some time later and became active.

    When Barefoot Ken Bob was in Peachtree, GA, for his 2010 summer tour, Barefoot TJ told me (and everyone else) about BFRS. I joined shortly after but have been inconsistent in visiting the site.

    I drove over to see Ken Bob. Of course, it was great to meet you, too, even though I didn't know who you were at the time. I stayed with a friend who I don't get to visit often enough; he lived in Alpharetta at the time.

    I signed up here in 2010, but the traffic was lacking, so I kept posting in the RW forums until I somehow got banned from posting there. Still not sure what that was all about.

    Now I'm sort of like a drifter, or a case of herpes, I kind of come and go at random... Like when a cat pisses on a rug, the smell is really never gone. Every once in awhile that awful scent sneaks up on you like a ninja and infiltrates your olfactory scenes with a force to be reckoned with!

    I bought a pair of 'barefoot' running shoes kinda by accident - I usually run with normal stable running shoes. I felt the sensation of running closer to the road immediately and wanted to know more about the science and feedback from folks also doing it.

    How did trying out new footwear bring you to the BRS?

    When Ken-Bob killed off the dying Yahoo group, I came here on his rec ... it's pretty dead here, too. I miss the old days when BF was new and exciting.
