    Thank you! I'm really excited about this new adventure. Now if the meter of snow would melt I could get outside and start running. For now I'm balancing on one leg a lot and jogging around the house :)

    Welcome, sounds like your weather is similar to ours in upstate NY. We are presently having snow and high wind *again*.

    I am fortunate that I have an indoot track nearby to run at.

    Hi Peanut.  I'm spending time

    Hi Peanut. I'm spending time on my spinning bike just now, to prepare a bit for spring. Snow gets old fast, doesn't it? We thought things were melting a couple of weeks ago, but nope. Been snowing since.

    I have a young friend who

    I have a young friend who does spinning when she can't get out to run. She and I did a 5k last fall and she did great because it really strengthened her legs. So, good for you!!!!

    I ran 8 miles today at the indoor track. 2 were Bare foot.

    That made me feel good!

    Peace,

    Peanut

    PPieters and Nyal are. 

    PPieters and Nyal are. They're the only two Norwegians in the BRS, and they found out they live just 20 minutes from one another! How neat is that?!

    Hey guys!It's been a cold

    Hey guys!
    It's been a cold winter here in the west of Norway.

    I had a lot of fun on my snowboard this winter and while having a lot of fun, I managed to sprain my ancle on a fun jump :(
    Spring is here, and I am finally able to run barefoot again.

    I get the same questions at work as last year about my bare feet, children point and laugh, my mom wonders if I just cannot afford shoes, the list goes on.
    I have just under 5kilometers to my office, and I can now run both ways, so a cool 10klometer without any problems really.

    Just found out that injinji socks in my fivefingers took care of slight blistering under my big toe :)


    Anyone, hi all "Norwegians"!
    I am in Bergen :)
    Anyone else in my neighborhood?
