Event comments:

Barefoot runners and their races are much like trail runners. THere's no fanfare, just 1,2,3 go! The course was well marked, professional timing, no water station. Cookout at the end. All in all, a good time.

Has got me interested in barefoot running

Most people believe that running barefoot is dangerous. Certainly, depending upon the surface, they would be correct. However, there is some suggestion that running barefoot may reduce injuries.

I just ran the Boston Marathon under nine minute miles, can I run eight minute miles for my half Ironman training runs? Or should I go slower?

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?
