    Thanks for putting up the info Matt! I'd like to participate but I have to dedicate my entire weekend to studying for a final exam I have Tuesday night. I was thinking of doing the Chicago Turkey Trot thanksgiving morning but I'm not sure if I'll do it yet. I'll post if decide to do it to let everyone know. Thanks again!

    Good luck with your exam. If you need a break from studying, you can always come and register at the last minute.

    Very true. BTW, are you running the 5k or 10k? If I convince myself to get away from my studying I'll probably just do the 5k.

    I'm going to do the 10K. Ifigure a nice leisurely run sounds better than a 5K sprint right now. The 5K and 10K's run together until about the 1.5 mile point, where they finally split off from each other.

    Back from the race. Just a couple thoughts. I think I might write up a race report later. First of all, the weather was nearly perfect. The only drawback was that the streets were a little damp during the race. So my feet were a little on the cold side initially.

    I saw a bunch of VFF's. That was a shock.

    The barefoot guy from last year was there again. He told me about a new path in Evanston that I will have try out at some point.

    I loved doing the 10K. This was my first 10K, and I like the distance a lot more than 5K. I think I will do more 10K's in the future.

    In general, people are still confused about barefoot running. They think I'm "tough" or "the man", but there is nothing tough about it.

    I really like the neighborhood feel of this race.

    One last note. I saw a friend who lives in the neighborhood and does gear check at the race. She said her husband now has "those toe shoes" based on a discussion I had had with him a year or two about barefoot running. I guess he loves them, and their college daughter might get some too.

    More later. I'll see if any picture turned out and if I'm motivated enough to write an actual race report.
