Caity from California
I'm happy to find Toe Salad... looks like a great site and helpful discussion forum. I'm a barefoot runner and everyone thinks I'm a lifestyle barefooter, but I'll put on shoes before I go into a store. I just prefer to be barefoot since it fits my personality of not wanting to be bothered with shoes - it's a choice thing that I took on just a year or so ago.
I live on the coast of California, so I have the mountains and the beaches (and the dunes which are beautiful). I'm currently - as of yesterday - training for a half-marathon in San Luis Obispo in October, so I have a few months to get my act together. I ran a marathon this year but I'd like to go back to the half-marathon distance and work up again.
I produce a new podcast that acknowledges/celebrates women who run barefoot and attempts to encourage more women to try it out. It's Run Barefoot Girl - more like a cheer, "Run, Barefoot Girl!"
Nice to meet you all!
