Wednesday picture tale

I'm long past definitive proclamations (as I've said before), but this run felt GOOD. It was short (1.6 miles), but I did it in huaraches, with the last .3 miles barefoot...

I do have to say, that I think the last month or so of shod running has actually improved my barefoot/minimal form. For reals, y'all. I've been so worried about form whilst running in big shoes that I've been hypervigilant about it. I think I've thought more about form in the last 5 weeks than I have in the last 5 months.

More as this story develops.


  1. Wow, huaraches? Glad you had such a great run!

  2. Yeah...I've had/worn huaraches since last summer. I like them more as walking around shoes than running shoes, honestly, but I wasn't up to a full-on barefoot run. I've recently purchased the Merrell Barefoot Road Gloves and will be putting up some first impressions sometime soon (I love 'em!).

    Thanks for reading!
