In six days, I'm going to run the Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Run barefoot.  It's been a goal for a long time and will hopefully silence some of the critics that claim it is impossible to run long distances without shoes.

wow, best of luck to you.  I'm quite impressed by any 100 miler, no matter what you have or don't have on your feet, but to do it barefoot would really be something.

Best of luck, can't wait for the post race report. Actually a goal of mine is to get all the way up to a 100 miler.

Glad you are running it in Ohio.  Then I can get some feedback about Ohio heat.  I would venture a guess Michigan is close, but a few degrees higher in temperature with a little added humidity can make a difference.

Good luck on your race.  Can't wait to read the race report on your blog.

The race went well.  Unfortunately, I did not run the whole thing barefoot.  I decided to switch to huaraches at the 33.3 mile mark.  The gravel on the course was more difficult than I expected and would have slowed my pace too much.  I should have a full race report very soon!

Maybe this is a sign I need to stop running barefoot around my neighborhood.  I have yet to find a way to keep from blistering my feet without running extremely slow on my sidewalks and streets around my house.  I might try running in my huaraches more and see if that lets me increase the mileage and speed without having to deal with blisters on the pads of my feet.  Still the mileage you get out of your bare feet is impressive.

I am looking forward to the race report and thanks for the discounted price on the new edition of  your book.  I look forward to reading it when it arrives.
