I kind of cheated last week (Shhhhh, don't tell Kathy) and instead of wearing shoes the entire week, I took them off each time I ran. I did 1/2 mile, 1-1/2 miles, and then 3-1/2 miles without shoes and without a problem. Today I ran 3 miles in the rain which is normally a lot of fun but the strong winds made running in one direction somewhat difficult.
After my lunchtime run, one of my workmates asked if I had just run barefoot. She said she overheard two little girls outside the building asking their mother, "Why was that man running with no shoes on?"
The mom explained to her daughters that some people think that running barefoot is good for them. Smart mom.
