You have reminded me of the Grinch just now... the Jim Carey version. LOL...
Welcome! I'm sure there will
Welcome! I'm sure there will be others to join you...some day. ;-)
Hmmm...seems now I'm the only one in HI... :-(
Officially I may be alone, but with all the lifestyle barefoot'ers in Hawai'i (The Big Island), I am actually far from it...
Actually, Jessica Lee of Run Bare took over the Hawaii Chapter. She and Michael also have an IBRD event planned for Hawaii, so be sure to check that out under the IBRD Events Listing under the IBRD link.
Sorry, there's one that got away from me. I will email her now to ask her to add it.
The question now is, which island? I'm on Hawaiʻi. Each could have its own sub-chapter if possible, since inter-island traveling can be pricey at times... ~
That's what Jessica offered, but it would be too much for me to manage, especially when we don't have enough members reporting in from the different islands. We should hear from her soon.
Sub-chapters for each island makes sense to me... There's no way I could fly to Maui every month.
Thanks for checking in, Lad.
Yes, a sub chapter on each island would be nice. I am a broke student, so travelling between islands is quite limited for me. O'ahu anyone?
So basically there is one barefoot runner on each island? hahahaha
I usually start my runs barefoot and bring along my huaraches to put on after a few miles. I feel great when I can do the whole run barefoot. But I just race in huaraches now.
Wendi on Oahu
YAY! Someone else on O'ahu!!!
Yes, something like that.
I'm new to this forum thing and didn't realize there were new messages in here... I was glancing quickly and misread the "Member Since" date as the post date, so thought this entire string of posts was over a year old. It also doesn't help that the emails were going to Michael's inbox and he's been deep in the Hoh Rainforest hanging out with Mick Dodge aka Barefoot Sensei, with little internet access. (But I will get that fixed so emails come directly to me.)
Anyway, I'm sorry for any miscommunication, but I have not been able to plan a IBRD event for May 5th. I will be on the mainland on that date and was unable to find someone locally to take on the responsibility. Honestly, I don't know how I would coordinate events on other islands either, unless I was planning a visit there myself. On the other hand, I wouldn't expect everyone to fly to Maui unless it was a larger event that I had ample time to plan. (It's only been a couple weeks since I decided to take over the chapter.)
Michael and I will be returning in the middle of May and will think about some sort of special event then. If someone on another island would like to coordinate a IBRD event, I'm happy to help promote it.
TJ, is there a way to form sub chapters that I could "oversee" to take the burden off of you? Or is that still a logistical mess?
Really sorry I couldn't come through on IBRD this time around.
I'm also on O'ahu. I admit, though, I've gone backwards on my barefoot running and I am back in a minimalist shoe. I have a whole bunch of stuff going on when I try to run barefoot anywhere except the beach. I'll try to be more active here!
Next time we're on O'ahu, we'll let you know. Maybe we can meet up for a barefoot run or hike and see if we can troubleshoot what's going on. (If it's running form or surface/terrain related.) I admit, I'm not fond of road running, so my feet are more adapted to trails. Same if you wind up on Maui. Let us know!
