Running various amounts of my mileage barefoot since July 2004. Now that it's mainstream, I am no longer crazy, but maybe I was among the visionaries.

RVRR Summer Series XC #1
I ran pretty poorly tonight at RVRR Summer Series XC. Racing tip: Don't
put spikes on for a race if you have not gone running in them for over 2
years. Plus very fatigued from 27 miles of weekend trail runs. 1st mile
felt OK. 2nd mile cramped my left hamstring and both shin areas
(tibialis anterior). I slowed so bad that I decided to stop at the top
of Red Barn Hill on the 2nd lap, and I ripped the shoes and socks from
my feet! Finishing barefoot felt so much better!
