I am a 38 year old runner. I began running in 1994 primarily as a means to maintain endurance and leg strength for long hikes but running quickly became a means unto itself. I would periodically take off on a rainy day run wearing a pair of old chacos sandals, no arch support etc... and loved it. I am moving into the barefoot/minimalist running mode these days. I am trying to do several miles a week barefoot.
I am in Alabama which means i can go barefoot nearly year round.
Lately I have been exploring the power line trails north of Birmingham. These are excellent paths that could so easily be converted to greenways.
Please say hi.
