    Hi I'm a BF runner from Whitby, Ontario. I'm excited to be part of the Canadian barefoot chapter. I've been a runner (shod) for most of my running career almost 20 years now. I've been running barefoot since April of this year. Looking forward to training to run a marathon BF sometime next fall or perhaps spring of 2012. I also race triathlons, and also looking forward to racing some sprint distance tri's next summer.

    Hello Horseman42,

    Well, well, there IS another southern Ontario CBW.

    Welcome and hopefully I'll see you at some events.

    Welcome Horseman,



    Geez you guys are almost within spitting distance. Ottawa Marathon is at the end of May 2011 ... hint hint. I'm planning on running barefoot. I think that 2011 will be the first year anyone has run the entire Ottawa marathon barefoot. My goal is to have fun... no time worries.



    You guys run Ottawa and I'll run one in the 905.



    - Rod

    Can't believe how many cool people we are collecting here. I think it's kind of exciting!

    It can be expensive to fly across the country to run in a marathon ... plus jet lag :(



    We can arrange something for accommodations (our place or the Chateau Laurier?). It would be fun to meet the notorious Kitty.



    If you can't make it to Ottawa for 2011. I'll get my butt to Van for 2012.
