Many of you who have followed my posts have read some of my posts whining and complaining about my right foot. Well for the last two weeks I have not been able to run barefoot at all, let alone walk barefoot.
Extremely frustrating. Many of the comments that have been forward to me about this problem [...]
Running = 850,
Cycling = 90,
Walking = 40
As a former heel striker, and a clydesdale athlete, I am used to destroying shoes to the point that they must be discarded into a bin of well loved shoes after only a few hundred miles. Every once in a while I find this bin and pull out [...]
When you run barefoot you can expect to feel some aches and pains in your feet and ankles when doing some hard training — especially when you wake up in the morning. At least that is my experience. What I did not expect was blood in my urine when I returned from a fast 8 [...]
My Dad had a heart attack directly related to diet and stress in 1992, and again this year he needed a number of stents put in to open some severe blockages. I made some changes in my life, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and doing a few repeats up the hill on my bike every day, but I kept the Mountain Dew habit, and the stressful job. … We were under direct orders to eat everything on our plate, and if for any reason we left food on the plate we were served up a good dose of guilt “don’t you know people are starving in Africa.”

What good is a run without pushups at the top.
The run on the way back. Steep and fast. The [...]
I have put another 50 miles running, 20 miles cycling, 16 hours weeding, and 8 hours framing a basement on my Five Fingers. I have been barefoot running a bit lately or I would have put more miles on them — so I think in total I have around 400+ conservative miles on them now.
There is a new trail next to Barrel Roll, in Santa Clara, that I discovered last week. I realized that this trail did not exist a few weeks ago. I was completely stoked to make this discovery, thinking to myself, that this trail rivals the best in Southern Utah. I found the trail while on [...]
