    Wonderful! Are they all members of the BRS? If not, can you recruit them?

    Also, I have asked the developers to create a photo album for the site, so be sure to move these over there once that's implemented. I wish they would hurry up! sigh.

    Those are great photos. It's kind of funny to see shoe company names on all their bibs, though!

    This time, I made it into the local newspaper:
    [​IMG]
    Translation of the figure caption at the bottom:
    "Barefoot in the rain: Dr. Martin Guengerich (Marburg Running School, Number 663) performed his 10 k run through the Burgwald (a forest area in Hesse) in continous rainfall without shoes."

    I love this part of the photo from above. It make a huge statement about foot plant and artificial interference:
