On Sunday October 14, 2012, I will be running the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront 1/2 Marathon BARE-FOOT yet again!
Only this time, I am calling out to ANY bare-foot runners to enter & race.
The goal is to set a new Canadian (and maybe WORLD) record for the number of bare-foot racers to start & finish a 1/2 marathon completely barefoot. My educated guess is that we only need 15 to 20 to set the new record but let’s go for 45 to 50!!
Further, my goal is to go under 1:40 which I believe would be the fastest bare-foot 1/2 Marathon time currently in Canada. I may be incorrect; if so, please respond via twitter or to this blog. You can also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The bare-foot running world is gradually growing in North America, whereas it never SHRUNK anywhere else on Planet Earth. It’s just that the so-called industrial world has done a better job of screwing up our feet (and thus, the rest of our bodies) by outfitting us in ‘stylish’ COFFINS (shoes that deaden the natural proprioceptive firing of the feet).
Let’s keep the bare-foot running movement growing.
It’s about time we got back to running safely, efficiently & at one with Mother Earth!
