I was trying to figure out why I was so tired these last couple of weeks. My normal runs of 5-8 miles 4-5 days a week have turned in 4 mile runs 2-3 times a week. I looked back in my running log and this is what I found: ( No wonder my body is saying, "Hey T you need a couple weeks off!" )
5/1 - Barefoot 5K (Barefoot Running Day)
5/21 - Coral Gables 5K , FL : 21:25 2nd in AG
5/28 - Barefoot 5K; (Pineland Farms Trail Running Fest.) 24:03 3rd Female

4/18 - Boston Marathon, Boston, MA: 4:01:16

On a side note this is just about half the events I participated in in 2011: There were 12 OTHER events I did in minimalist footwear or snowshoes. Including 1 other marathon and 2; 50K's.
Looking forward to 2012! :)
"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.
