    I'm entering this as my first ever marathon.

    Anyone else registered? How 'shod' are you going?

    I've been back and forth (due to training time available) between racing flats, VFFs, and true barefoot. I had a break from the craziness at work and took off running last week, barefoot, and now am recovering from blisters. So I don't know if I could make marathon distances Barefoot yet.

    When is it?  What will you

    When is it? What will you run in? What's the course like, surface? It's pretty flat down there right? Good luck! Welcome!

    This marathon is on my

    This marathon is on my radar...the way the course is layed out I think there are a few uphills due to bridges and/or on ramps so may not be 100% flat like I had hoped. I'm still wondering how the temps are that late in the year... its very hard to find a marathon in Georgia that is warm enough for barefooting.

    I'm signed up for this one

    I'm signed up for this one too...first marathon. Longest race to date is a 10k BF, so hoping to step up the distance soon.

    Will be BF for almost 2 yrs when the race comes around, though I haven't done much in the last month as I just moved to Atlanta. I have been planning on going BF for the run, but I haven't come near to those distances yet, so I am wondering how the feet will fare training over the summer in Hotlanta.

    Have the P'tree coming up soon so I need to off my butt and get out soon.

    Anyone else going to this one?

    The date is quickly approaching; starting to get that excited/nervous feeling.
