Barefoot running for fun, love, life and other corny stuff!

Pepper and I went for a quick 6.3 today. We ran down to Glens trail where I realized my feel have been spoiled by roads. After the 3/4 mile technical trail, I decided my feet had enough rough sensory input, so I got back on the road for and additional 4.5 of asphalt and concrete smoothness. I was panning on a run through Gorge park, returning on the Glens, but it wasn't to be. All of the snow and road running since December seem to have conspired to exaggerate the delicacy of my tender feet. I need more trails!
The humidity and heat were a strange feeling today. After about 4 miles, Pepper decided she had enough and stopped for a rest. We waited about 5 minutes and she was ready to go again. We miss the cold.
