Warm Sidewalks

I managed to get out for a 1.3 mile jog with the wife and kids this evening, man did it feel good! Even though it snowed a couple inches two days ago it was 65ยบ today! I started out in my invisible shoes and after about 300ft I figured I'd take them off to see how cold the sidewalks were. I was pleasantly surprised! I've been trying to go as minimal as possible all winter, although no running has taken place, and it didn't feel half bad to get back on my feet so-to-speak... I'm hoping the weather will cooperate and I can get back into the swing of things!


  1. I've been running barefoot as much as possible this winter and I've discovered that once I get my heart pumping long enough to break a sweat, my feet are happy to be de-shod even at temperatures well below freezing. Glad to hear you're getting back to running. I'm sure that your feet will be that much stronger and readier for the running having spent the winter minimally supported.

  2. That's great! I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things and muster up some discipline this spring / summer. I'm actually headed to Kenya this week and I'm interested to observe what people are wearing there. I know one thing, they never have to worry about the cold!
