Woman Running Barefoot (IMG_1153)

Newer Older

The most pretty, healthy guys & gals were at Torry Pines State Beach. I used to run barefoot, 6-miles or more on the beach in all kinds of weather and take a vigorous swim in the biggest waves. Now I can't do it any more because I smoke cigs. Makes me feel so sad. Another aspect of this bad trip, which I cut short after one day.

I hope her pic will inspire me to GET HEALTHY, again! :)

EDIT (21 May 10): This picture (cropped below the waist) was in an on-line ("Lifehacker") article about barefoot running. I also used to do 100-mile bike rides barefoot.

EDIT (24 Sept 10): Picture (cropped above the waist) was in an on-line article ("Lifehacker") on How To Build the Ultimate Beats Per Minute Optimized Playlist.

EDIT (9 Sept 11): Just got back from the same beach (haven't quite quit smoking) and was running 3-miles barefoot, which caused a sprained (or strained) ankle. Note that running barefoot uses different ankle muscles/tendons, which caused the strain. The ankle swelled up and caused me to limp a little for the week I spent at the Burning Man festival. I may start running again in a few days wearing shoes.

One more thing I noticed this year was the expensive and figure-flattering outfits these healthy runners wear.

    WTF? You were here????

    I THINK you should stop smoking and start taking better care of yourself (again).

    You're worth it my friend, very worth it.

    Yeah, BigDude, I was there for one day.

    The woman in the photo is just one of many fit women from San Diego jogging on the beach. I used to run barefoot too. If someone tried to pass me, I'd race 'em. No matter what the weather, I'd be drenched in sweat, unlike this runner.

    Cool, thx for noticing it! Recently, there have been articles on the national news about the benefits of running barefoot. Here's a news video from Boston.
