Hundreds of barefoot and minimalist runners gathered on Governors Island this morning to participate in the Second Annual NYC Barefoot Run. What a great event! Participants began together and ran as many 2.1-mile loops around the island as they desired. I ran two laps, mostly in Vibrams, some barefoot. Although I’ve been running in Vibrams for about two years, I stick to moderate pavement mileage and alternate with minimalist-sneakered long runs. The weekend’s seminars and today’s run inspired me to ramp up my barefoot pavement mileage.
My favorite participants were the Two Rivers Treads guys: http://www.trtreads.org/Tweet
