    Completed the Ocean Drive Marathon Sunday from Cape May to Sea Isle NJ with a new PR of 3:43:25 an 8:32 Avg. pace. I ran a little less than half of it Barefoot taking my Luna Sandals off and on with the road conditions. The course is miles and miles of horrible chip seal which took an even further beating from hurricane sandy. I had a few friends finish in VFF's, saw a lot of minimalist shoes and 1 other guy in Luna's who said he'd save the barefooting for the crazy people. Recieved all kinds of positive comments on the barefooting and was recognised by many as that crazy barefoot guy again. Only heard 2 or 3 negatives and that was in the last 2 miles as a few felt defeated being passed by someone barefoot but they were just cursing themselves. All in all it was a great time and I'll be back next year.
