Barefoot Running and Relays
|The 24 Hour Ragnar Relay|
At any rate, I was happy to see barefoot running given some credibility in the news lately. Yup. I'm part of that group of crazies (the Barefoot Runners Society), but now that Katie Couric has given us the wink-wink maybe people won't be so disturbed by my naked feet. I can only hope.
I've been toying with the idea of doing the Ragnar Relay in September 2011. Thanks to Jen at Lips, Hips and Asphalt I've been inspired to look seriously into this. The 24 hour relay route here in Nor Cal sounds beautiful! It would start in San Francisco and travel up to Calistoga in Napa Valley. I'm still not sure how the logistics of something like this is handled (like the transportation and coordination) let alone the fact that I don't even have 11 runner friends. Ok. So the whole thing eludes me still. If any of you have ever done something like this, please share your experience. I would love to hear how it went and how you liked it. Running barefoot in a relay like this would be a great accomplishment for me. We'll see how seasoned a barefoot runner I've become by then. September of 2011, if all things go as planned, will be my first year barefoot runniversary. What a way to celebrate!
