Baytown Bud Heatwave 5 miler
What better way is there to celebrate July 4th than to go run 5 miles and then compete in a sausage eating contest? Well that's what I did yesterday. In order for me to be entered in the race my running group the Golden Triangle Strutters had to get in the top 4 spots for the most members participating in the race. It was a close race but we were able to secure a 4th place spot.
So to the race. I was feeling good with my running since I've actually been training and I was excited to go out there and try to get a good time. My goal was to run it in less than an hour, which is a 12 min pace or better. During the first mile...

Any way you look at them, Jake Brown's feet are wicked tough.
Shoeless since departing Huntington Beach, California, in early March, Brown has run eastward across mountains, through deserts, on sandy trails and along concrete interstates.
Against the relentless pounding — sometimes 40 miles a day or more — the soles of his feet have become thick, hardened calluses. They've deflected broken glass and sharp stones and turned deep brown from constant exposure to the sun.
On Tuesday we caught up with Brown, 27, in Carthage on his...
Fairfield Half Marathon – 2015
By Barefoot Gentile
Well here it is the Fairfield half marathon, the most consistent post on this blog. This was my 8th half marathon, all barefoot except for the first one.
Let’s start with training, or lack of. The formula stayed the same, running 3 times a week with the long run on the weekend, it’s how I run normally. I just like to plan out the long runs accordingly, I can easily to do that without a plan. I was averaging about 15 miles per week, for 12 weeks, not much. I got in two 10 milers as well.
It poured all night before but luckily the rain held off for the race, the temperature was much lower than previous years. Usually it would be 80 degrees at the 8:15AM start, this year it was about 60 degrees and overcast, actually perfect running weather.
I started the race at an 8:00 MP pace, way too fast. I never even...
Barefoot Running Workshop 2: Lower and Upper Biomechanics
By Emilie Reas, Chapter President, San Diego, California
In the first of our Barefoot Running Workshops, we explored facts and fiction of barefoot running, sensory awareness and mechanics of the foot. In our second workshop today, we introduced basic running kinematics before moving north from the foot to cover mechanics of the lower and upper body. Here’s a recap of the workshop highlights for those who missed it.
Before diving into the nitty-gritty of leg, hip and torso function, it’s essential to understand how one gets from zero to running in the first place. Running has been described in a multitude of ways, from a...
