Recently, Road Runner Sports sent this email to their subscribers from the Chief Runner, Mike G.
In Mike G.'s eyes people don't have the sense to not step on rocks and broken glass. He actually has to tell people not to step on glass. Geez, now I know why I've been sidelined for weeks. I'm an idiot.
And as a part of my idiocy, I've done a three-mile and a four-mile run barefoot each week for the past two weeks. What a difference a mild winter makes for that. I finished my nine-mile run to work (wearing shoes) on Thursday morning five minutes faster than ever. (I've been slacking on running to work for the last month.) Regardless, Hank G. thinks Mike G. is right. This barefoot running is killing me.
