What a way to end a wonderful week in the Pacific Northwest! I can't think of a better way to top off the week but to have a barefoot running meet-up that will go down in Fremont 5K history. And, what a pleasure to finally meet Barefoot Jon from Seattle and Ryan (who drove up three hours from Portland, Oregon!) It was also a joy to meet Peter who drove in from Olympia, Washington, and Billy Gard who has been running barefoot longer than most of us. The surprise of the evening was a few seconds after the race started I felt a tap on my shoulder and there was Barefoot Ted! Hadn't seen Ted since the Long Beach Marathon in 2005. He didn't come to run the 5K but he did run with us wanted to hang out with us after the race.

The whole gang of barefoot runners were Jon, Ryan, Peter, Billy, Laura (in Vibrams), and myself. Ted and his girlfriend Leah were there as our supporting crew (thanks Leah for helping snap pictures!).
