Hi friends. I haven't posted here in a while, so I thought I would drop in a quick update. I've been running almost exclusively barefoot over the summer, averaging about 10 to 20 miles a week. I've dropped about 20 pounds since the last time I was here. Now in the 230's. I'm still slow, but my average pace has improved to 12 minutes a mile. I have my first 10k race coming up in October, which I intend to do barefoot. I still have yet to encounter another barefoot runner in my area, although I have had a good deal of questions and interest about it from friends and random people. It's been a great summer, and I'm looking forward to cooler temperatures and many more miles this Fall. I hope you all have been doing well.
