    Link: Dallas Area Group Run

    Hello everybody! I've gotten together with a few other runners in the area and we are going to host a group run on April 2nd!

    We will meet at Oak Point Nature Preserve in Plano at 9:00 am. This is also the location for the IBRD event so it'll be a good chance to come out and get used to the terrain.

    There will be a lot of options on surface types to run as well as distances so come join us for a good morning of running.

    We will start at the main parking lot from the Los Rios entrance.

    For any information or questions hit me up: jimmy@gobarefooting.com

    The concrete paths are wide, smooth and very friendly for raw barefoot newbies like myself (not a fan of pure barefoot nature trail running)

    I'm planning on being there, but am unfamiliar with the area, so I'll prepare for any terrain.

    Run for fun,

    My plan is to stick to the paved path but you guys are more than welcome to jump off on the trails so you can prepare for any terrain you would like David!

    Had a great time Saturday getting to run with some barefooters! We had five people come out and it was a blast. I hope to see more of you on the 1st for International Barefoot Running Day!

    Thanks for organizing the run, Jimmy. After we finished, I got my 10 miles in. Maybe I shouldn't say this since I could jinx it, but Oak Point is one of the best, uncrowded, smoothest areas I've run around in.
