Very very public today (well, yesterday now).

I ran a polling station in the UK's local elections in my Speeds. 6.30am-10pm. My feet are happy. The rest of me's shattered. The only people to comment on them were the other station staff, "They look comfortable." and one candidate's agent.

A few hundred other people passed through the station without noticing or commenting.

Drove home from Edmonton barefoot today. 450km drive, all on crazy small two way highways. Great drive, and I love driving the Subaru on those roads. It's great for passing massive industrial loads!!

I've never done it until today, but I will from now on, at least for longer drives. Maybe not in the winter, when it's -30 outside, with my car all full of sand and salt. Still though, I like the sensation. I can feel the clutch even better than in my luna sandals or VFFs, so those quick gear changes felt nice. The pedals on my WRX are pretty big, with small circular rubber pads on them, adding a really nice texture, with lots of grip. I'll do it from now on!!

Haha nice, yea when its snowing i dont but even when its cold my heater in my jeep makes up for it.  It becomes weird to drive with shoes after driving barefoot for so long.

Over the weekend I did a 13 mile circuit hike in Shenandoah National Park along the Mt. Knob/Jeremy's Run Trails.  Quite a bit of the trail would have been fine for barefooting but since the terrain changes so rapidly I opted to keep my KSO's on the entire time.  The best part of this hike is coming back up Jeremy's Run which is a swift moving creek.  We had to cross it 14 times!  The slippery rocks would have been tough navigating without any shoes but my KSO's did fine.

Did a short 1k in my Speeds - muddy grass terrain... not my favourite surface at all but it was just for the experience of participating in a barefoot race with lots of other people. Smiley

I haven't owned a car in 9 years, in Mtl with the metro I don't need it, but when I did I used to drive barefoot to keep my car clean, I will keep doing that with my new electric car when I move to Qc City in a little while...

I had a nice evening walk around our like, with my girlfriend. I was barefoot, and she was shod :-)
It was about 7-8km, the path is paved (hard asphalt).

Im pretty confident my Bikilas did something special because the arch tightness/pain i had been dealing with basically doesn't happen any more since switching from the ksos for running. After a long 7 day brake from running i went out and ran 2 miles, upping it about .5 miles from my last run. part of my run was also on a dirt/slightly rocky trail then soft grass before doing the last 1.5miles on pavement. Even after i started to feel arch pain i changed the stride and form a bit and it went away and i was able to branch out and run a different route than my usual circle. It will take a while to get my bad cardio system to catch up so it was a some what of a strenuous run but im young and recover very quickly. Upping the run again to 2 miles sure felt good though! Gonna work on it more now that school is out for the summer! Weekly 5ks by the end of summer? I hope so!

side note, i find it odd that the bikilas are AMAZING to run in, but for just causal wear they are by far my least favorite (although i think they tie with my trek sports for best looking). the heel rubs and i was getting tight and constricting TOFP when sitting down for a couple of hours (went away when i was walking and standing).
