Barefoot in Longwood Gardens
I was fortunate to spend a day with my oldest brother at a place called Longwood Gardens. It's a remarkable place and quite beautiful. But I expanded its beauty on this most recent trip because I spent much of my time there barefoot. I have seen the flowers there many times before, but this was the first time that I experienced walking over the pathways. Truthfully enough, the asphalt pathways were nothing remarkable, but the areas where there were smooth stone pathways were delightful. So were the places where we could walk upon the grass in the meadow area and the dirt and wood chips in the woods. I felt quite happy to touch upon the many different textures. I enjoyed it, my feet enjoyed it. Seriously. Think about that if you're someone who lives in shoes most...

The weather was excellent and everything was set to go! This time I felt I was ready to compete being BF, so far my longest BF distance was 15 Km in the trail where I train.

The race started at 7am along...
Glenbrook Classic 2014
Sorry it has taken me so long to write anything about this, have been sick as a preschooler.
So....yup I did the run....ended up wearing sockwas, after the cold weather at GLow Worm taught me a few lessons.
If anyone in NSW remembers this weekend, we started getting severe weather warnings, sheep graziers alerts etc on Thurs / Fri. By Sat morning there was snow above 8oom, blizzard conditions in the mountains, 80km winds.....you name it. I actually phoned the event organisers twice on the Saturday to see if the event would go ahead ( it has been cancelled in the past due to bad weather).......Hell no they assured me! The weather would be fine in the mountains tomorrow apart from the...
