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.

My "footwear"

Here is a picture of what I use for footwear. I included my pair of "car shoes" because those are the 1 pair of flip-flops I use if I HAVE to.
Merrell Pace Gloves = Trails
VFF = Some trails and winter running if not wet or too cold(below 15 degrees F)
Huaraches = tool for winter running/walking and occas. as "car shoes" may add toe socks with them for extra warmth.
Injinji Toe Socks with duct tape = another winter running tool if roads are not wet.

What do I do if it is less than 10 degrees F 12 inches of snow with wind chill factors? Usually cross train indoors. If I go out for errands or to take the children somewhere I use one of or a combination of the above footwear. Last winter I used my snowshoes wearing my fivefingers with toe socks, which sucked, and my pace gloves with toe socks and gators.
