    I just ran 3 miles BAREFOOT!!! A mix of gravel pathways, grass, leaves on the path, mud, and a bit of pavement. It feels AWESOME...LIBERATING...EXCITING...

    All of the walking barefoot led to this reward. It wasn’t very fast (maybe 5 m.p.h) but it was definitely inspiring, fulfilling, and enjoyable.

    I’m in a Happy Place My first 3 miles of many to come.

    That's awesome! I just my first 3+ mile run of the season yesterday as well, and it's got me excited about the progress for this season's runs :)

    Congrats to you as well. Still on a high from it. I’m resisting the very strong urge to go again today. The feet still have a bit of a tenderness/tingly sensation to them...maybe overstimulated?

    Looking forward to repeating it tomorrow.

    It’s a phenomenal feeling. I so look forward to my opportunities to kick footwear off and go. Yesterday was a six mile trot on different surfaces- thoroughly enjoyable. I ran by a waterfall and enjoyed being able to go in the water without having to take a moment to remove footwear or put it back on...

    Understandable. I’m appreciative of where I live and the outdoor opportunities I’m able experience. Every run or walk takes me to a place good for the soul(s) :happy:
