The Barefoot Runners Society needs your support.
As you know, the BRS is funded and operated solely by its members. A modest income from advertising and tee shirt sales no longer covers the monthly costs for running and maintaining the site. That's right. We've grown by leaps and bounds this past year! Who said...
1812 Challenge and Half Marathon
This past weekend I traveled up to northern NYS to visit family, and run in a race for the first time in New York since I was in high school (that'd be about 20 years ago). I was really thinking about cancelling, or dropping to the half since my training had not really prepared me to race 18+ miles this year. I had a good base, and a couple good races earlier this year, and with such a long drive to go there I figured I might as well just attempt the whole thing even if I had to go easy.

The last minute change to move the half & full marathon route to a park on the edge of Lyon's city center proved to be multi-loop course that was pretty craggly asphalt with sections of rough irregular gravel & small rocks ... with the race ending in a stadium. Using huaraches for the marathon was the best option for me at my level ... but a gal from India did the half marathon barefoot and a Costa Rican did the marathon barefoot.
Why do you run?
By BF Mitch
To spend time with friends.
To impress those friends.
To lose weight.
To abolish the feelings of guilt for eating like a crazed lion.
Or do you run for deeper reasons?
To test your physical, mental, and emotional capacity in an all out war against a course or trail.

To distract your mind from whatever may be going on in your...
