Barefoot Mama

"I started running barefoot in March 2008. I started one step at a time, one day at a time. I decided to start keeping a journal of sorts. Sharing my history, my journey and my adventures."

I have taken some new paths in relation to my running over the last year. This blog will still include my running adventures but I have to move on with more stories of my family and the journey we have taken together over the last year. This blog was started as a way to help me record my barefoot journey but now needs to become more than that. Please be patient as I explore ways to stay connected with family and friends.

"Crazy"!

Just a funny thing my daughter said. We were pulling into the grocery store and I told the kids not to get out of the car right away I had to look in my purse and see what I had for coupons before we got out. My daughter said, " your not going to be one of those crazy coupon ladies are you?" and I said, "I'm already crazy so would it even matter?" and she said, "not a crazy runner, mom, a crazy lady who clips coupons!" LOL From the mouths of babes! (She's 8) :)

My Trip to NYC (Barefoot Running Event) Part One


The NYC Barefoot running event happened weeks ago. I know I'm lame for writing about it now. I was so excited about going and then never even posted about it! So here's a little something about my adventure to NYC.

If you ever want to rough it in the city let me know. I'll get you the info. on a "hotel/hostel" in Manhattan fro $30.00 pp a night that you can stay at. We loved it! Not for everyone though. You have to like creepy hallways, smelly stairways and VERY small rooms. But , the price was right and we didn't plan on hanging out in our room. We were going to be gone all day exploring and only needed a bed.
Places we saw: Grand Central Station, Empire State Building, Central Park, Battery Park, Statue of Liberty (from a distance), Wall Street chaos and Sept 11th Memorial.

Our friend Emily met us on Sat. and we went walking in the city.
No pictures of the Sat. afternoon seminars and barefoot running workshops in Battery Park. We were busy exploring the city and enjoying Central Park. And we knew we would see everyone at the Barefoot Party on Sat. evening. We ended up at Battery Park just as things were winding down though. I was able to get one or two pics. and talk to my friend Frank Harczuk about barefoot running and the Sunday Barefoot run.
