    Hi, I'm Ashley and I live in Gastonia, just outside of Charlotte. I'm a newbie barefooter, just started at the beginning of March.

    Hey Ashley!  I'm here in

    Hey Ashley! I'm here in Charlotte, been barefooting since January, and certainly not doing very well. I'll keep at it, though.

    Hello everyone else!

    Hey all,

    I'm just outside Raleigh, in Holly Springs, NC. I've been barefoot running and minimal running for about 1.5 years now.

    If you guys are close enough

    If you guys are close enough to each other, Larry, you can organize a meetup/group run, get to know each other and learn from each other (how to run barefoot that is). (Use your Chapter page for scheduling and adding specific details about the meetup, like directions, photos, etc.) Post back here once you do. We would all love to hear more about your meetups. The main reason why the Barefoot Runners Society was formed was so we could find each other. Why just talk about running barefoot together...let's run barefoot together!

    Hi, I have a couple of runs

    Hi, I have a couple of runs listed on the Main NC Chapter page. I will find more that are not coastal biased. ( I live on the Crystal Coast.) Thanks TJ for the help. I am new to this, and tend to be more technical.

    See there?!  That's what this

    See there?! That's what this whole project is all about. That's what we're about here at the BRS. Making connections with others who are as "nuts" as we are.

    Like Jon, I am also from

    Like Jon, I am also from Holly Springs. I have been running barefoot since January. So far, my longest BFR is 8 miles and I will run 20 miles this week. Between work and family it is hard to find time for much running.



    Hope to run with some of you soon.

    I am in New Bern, NC. I started running in November and went right to barefoot.
    I grew up in Gastonia on N. Rhyne St off of Modena St.

    I guess I've never posted in here - I couldn't find where I had, anyway. I live in Fuquay Varina and work at Fort Bragg and would be glad to meet up with folks near either spot sometime.

    Hi folks,
    On rare occasions I come back to Stateville, where my parents live. I attended city schools for a part of my primary education, but don't have any contacts there anymore. There are some excellent places to train barefoot, however (MacAnderson Park), recreation paths off Sullivan Road.

    If you live in Statesville or environs and want to go running, I'll be in town a few days in March - let me know...

    Christian

    Phil, I am at Fort Bragg also and live in Hope Mills. I was starting to think I was the only barefoot runner around here. Do you do much barefoot running on post?
