I'll be in O.C. MD next week and I want to ask what's best. Running with my VFF KSO Trek of just completely barefoot? And I have heard running on sand is difficult?

It can be difficult, because if you run in the loose sand you are expending a lot of energy.  If you run on the wet sand you are kind of lopsided. Obvious for many reasons, barefoot is the way to go.

Has to be barefoot every time for me, try to run on the wet sand where the tide has gone out as it is a firmer surface and as the beach is sloped always try to run both ways so the stress's on the body balance out.
