Barefoot Runners Society
A year ago I quit smoking. For my birthday today I decided to run a race for the American Lung Association in Harrisburg, PA. (Barefoot, of course!!) ...and placed! It was even announced that I "ran the whole thing barefoot!"
A true miracle! What a wonderful birthday gift.
Bad A$$ Feet
Last week I heard for the first time about the Downtown Detroit Runners.
On their website they talk about how the weekly participants range from walkers to marathoners, and I figured, hey, what the heck!
So last night I showed up for the Tuesday evening four mile/six mile run in Midtown.

I was going to run the 50 mile race (80 km, and from this point I will refer only in Km) along with two partners from my training trail team, at this point I’ve only ran a 50 and a 59km ultras in the past months so I decided it was time…
The race was a circuit of 50 km, first you had to run 25K, reach the supply point, then...
