Just wanted to shout out HI to all the CT barefooters out there. As the start of this thread states "I swear barefoot hasnt caught on in this state yet" but I think maybe its getting closer? I keep hearing more about other barefoot runners at the races I ran barefoot this year. I did the Plainville GE Petit 5k in the summer, Canton Lobster Loop 5K, the Colebrooke HTC Hogsback Half Marathon and the Kent Pumpkin run 5 miler this fall. I am in a pretty neat barefoot place right now. I came into my first year of racing by doing some as a barefoot runner. For a month or so, I was separating out my Shod PR and my BF PR, but now my BF PR is my PR ! ! I hope to meet-up with some of you soon.
