Out of 55,090 runners at the July 4th 42nd Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, how many were barefoot or in minimalist footwear? I have no idea, but what I do know is that I only saw myself and Terry (Mokaman) running barefoot and heard of a barefoot runner running in the seeded group ahead of my friend who couldn't catch him, who is also a seeded runner. And Barefoot Tyler ran it barefoot too...in 49:41 no less! (Great job, Tyler!) So that makes four known barefoot runners. I am so sure there were more. Now how many were in minimalist footwear? Well, hanging out outside of my corral waiting for Terry before the race, I counted and chased down to hand out the BRS card to at least 20 minimalist runners: All were wearing VFFs except one was in Neos, one was in Evos, one was in Minumus, and one was wearing Ted's Lunas. Ha! So, if I saw that many cruising by my corral or getting into my corral, how many were in total at the race? A whole bunch more! Last year, I could count the number of VFF runners on all my fingers; this year, I could not. We're making progress!
