    Ran the Hospital Hill 5k yesterday at Crown Center in Kansas City. Ran the hole thing, no walking, and did it barefoot. As near as I could tell I was the only one of us there. It was a good run for me, 39:36. It was a cloudy day and mostly sunny during the race, though there were many shady spots. The pavement was pretty easy.
    I really hope to figure out how to stay in condition over the winter this year. The goal will be the 10K next year and then on to the Half.
    I ran the half twice in the past as a shod runner. I managed to come in dead last the last time. I mean seriously, I was the last one to come in under the cutoff.

    Seems like I only see a handful of minimalist runners when I make it out for a group run, let alone barefooters. Great job!

    Fantastic, I wish I would have been there to see it. 59 heck I'm 59 and just thrilled to be running at all.
