2004 Winter Barefoot Running

November 24, 2004 -

We got nine inches of the wet slushy variety last night. It was 34 degrees when I went out to run this afternoon. The first mile was a bit chilly, but I warmed up. It was a blast splashing though the melting snow, jumping through snow mounds that the plows had made, and generally just having a great time! I almost wimped out and went to run on a treadmill at the gym, but I thought how in the heck am I going to get acclimated to running a barefoot marathon in the snow if I don't start getting out there and doing it?

Anyway, a nice 6.5 miles at an 8:50 pace.
