61. Lloyd Clarke Sports - wall of shoes
The other day I snapped a photo of the awesome wall of shoes at Lloyd Clarke Sports: This really deserves a wide angle lens rather than my little smart phone camera. The shoe choices are amazing and include many minimalist shoes. I continue to hope that they will start carrying ...

62. A Bunch of Running Shoes
A few people have asked how many shoes I have. Ever since running became one of my primary recreational activities, shoes have become a significant hobby of mine. I used to spend money on things like video games and computer gadgets. Now I spend money on shoes. Here is a ...

63. Turkey Trot 10k 2011 - Race Report
On Thanksgiving I ran the local Gainesville Turkey Trot 10k, sponsored by Lloyd Clarke Sports. I chose to race in my Soft Star RunAmoc DASH shoes, pictured here with the race t-shirt: A significant portion of the course was beautiful grass or trail. It very much reminded me of a ...

64. Tom Walker Memorial Half Marathon 2011 - Race ...
Saturday I ran the 2011 Tom Walker Memorial Half Marathon. The race course travels along the scenic Gainesville-Hawthorne trail, a nice out-and-back course on a paved bike path. It was a cold crisp morning (around 40 degrees at the start), but the temperature was destined to go up 10-15 degrees ...

65. Krampus
I spotted Krampus at Tipple's Beer and Wine Store the other day and had to take a picture. I first learned of Krampus from a running blogger named Scott who writes wonderful running tales of his running experiences: http://derscott.blogspot.com/2011/02/...tacks.html

66. John Holmes Trail Run 2011 - Race Report
Every race is different. Last year I ran this race barefoot and had a blast, despite ending up with very sore feet. This year when I returned to the Brooksville, Florida area to run the John Holmes 16 Mile trail run, I opted to wear shoes. I wore a slightly ...

67. Soft Star RunAmoc DASH performance in the Blue ...
A few weeks ago I was on vacation in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. I wore my Soft Star RunAmoc DASH moccasins on a number of occasions. I was completely in awe of the RunAmoc DASH trail sole's traction on the rounded boulders of the Appalachians. Pictured here ...

68. Barefoot 2011 Melon Run
Even though the 4th of July festivities and fireworks were cancelled due to funding issues here in Gainesville, FL, another Independence Day tradition is still going strong. The 33rd Annual Melon Run (3-miler) is a Florida Track Club event that took place at Albert Ray Massey Westside Park on Monday. ...

69. One year of running
Thanks to dailymile I have a very nice graph of my monthly mileage for the 12 months since I started running regularly in 2010. Training logs are great. It's pretty clear that I was able to boost my mileage after receiving my Altra Instinct running shoes in April. In May ...

70. Soft Star RunAmoc DASH Smooth Is a Great ...
Soft Star Shoes recently released new models of running moccasins, the RunAmoc DASH Smooth and the RunAmoc DASH LITE. These shoes are different than previous RunAmocs in that they have a true shoe lacing mechanism. I bought a pair of the DASH Smooth to become my new work shoe since ...

71. Altra Running shoes - the Instinct
About a month ago I received the long-awaited Instinct shoes by Altra Zero Drop Footwear. I have already put almost 150 miles on mine. They have worked so well that I've been too busy running to take time to blog about them. Prior to owning the Altra Instincts, my weekly ...

72. RunAmoc and Huaraches revisited
I meant to post this a few months ago, but I have been too busy running to spend time blogging. ;) I have changed my opinion about the Soft Star Shoes RunAmoc Lite and the Invisible Shoes huarache sandal. When I first blogged about my huarache sandals, I complained about ...

High quality barefoot running video of Dr. Mark Cucuzzella on beautiful rolling countryside at Antietam National Battlefield.

Nice form video posted by Merrell:

75. I am the Right Foot
I purchased this artwork by Rokoko at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar in Austin, Texas. The text in the artwork begins with "I am the Right Foot". I liked this painting because of the vibrant colors and because many of the phrases go particularly well with barefoot running:

76. Good Running Form video
A great video on running form / technique: I first saw this video posted by the Learn to Run initiative: http://www.facebook.com/learntorun * Update 1.20.2011 * For me, "neutral hips" is not a sufficient cue... I have always tended to slouch so "neutral" to me would be too far back, even ...

77. It has come to this with my VFF
I love and hate my Vibram FiveFingers Bikila running shoes. I love that I can wear them and have beautiful runs like today, where I had a segment that felt perfect and effortless. I love that they have great traction on wet surfaces (better than my bare feet). I love ...

78. Software to help you live longer
I read an article today that says "it is entirely possible to meet current physical activity guidelines while still being incredibly sedentary." It goes on to say that people like me who sit in front of computers all day are doomed to an early death (ok, I'm exaggerating a little ...

79. Merrell Trail Glove may be minimalist shoe perfection
Jason Robillard writes that "no shoe has come closer to minimalist perfection" than the Merrell Trail Glove in his review posted at Barefoot Running University. The full review: http://barefootrunninguniversity.com/2011/01/04/merrell-trail-glove-review/ A shoe like the Vibram FiveFingers without the toe pockets sounds really great to me.

80. Ryan Hall plyometrics video
Ryan Hall, Josh Cox and Terrence Mahon demonstrate some plyometric exercises that they use to build speed and power:

81. six months of running
After 6 months of running, I am feeling pretty good. I lost 20 pounds and have avoided developing any serious running injuries. I totaled over 400 miles. I finished a half marathon. I have successfully converted my running stride so that I land with a midfoot strike rather than a ...

82. In Search of the Perfect Running Shoe
The worst thing about trying to choose new running shoes is that it is almost impossible to know how they will perform without testing them in the wild on a few runs (or 10 - 20 miles). Six months ago I decided that I was going to start running regularly ...

83. Distance Medley Relay at 2010 Penn Relays
I always enjoyed the relay meets when running track in high school and college. Here is some nice video of the 2010 Penn Relays - Distance Medley event. The Distance Medley is comprised of four runners each running a different distance: 1200M, 400M, 800M, 1600M.

84. barefoot running foot strike slow motion - adult ...
I took some video of myself and my 3-year old daughter running barefoot to compare our foot strikes / running form. Each segment is at full speed, then slow motion at half speed, and then even slower at quarter speed. I have a forefoot strike. My daughter has a midfoot ...

85. John Holmes Trail Run - Race Report
Saturday I ran the John Holmes 16 Mile trail run at the John Holmes 50k Trail Run and 16 Mile Fun Run in the Withlacoochee State Forest, Florida (the area is sometimes known as the Croom hiking trails). I finished! That was my longest run ever in my whole life... ...

86. My Minimalist Running Shoe Comparison
Below is a list of my running footwear, how many miles I have put on them, and some opinion about each. I also thought it would also be amusing to include my wife's initial reaction upon first seeing each type of shoe. Sorted by mileage:

87. Nike Free Run Plus
My Nike Free Run+ shoes have become my primary running shoe. They do well on roads and sidewalks and are very forgiving if my legs are tired. Minimalist shoes like the Vibram FiveFingers are not forgiving at all. The Nike Free Run+ do a good job on trails, too. Here ...

88. almost three months of running
I have had a few foot injuries and setbacks, but overall I am pleased with my training progress. I'm now capable of doing around 20 miles per week. I'm actually amazed at how quickly I've been able to increase my mileage. I think that switching from a heel-strike to a ...

89. 2010 Melon Run in Gainesville, FL
I'm still having running soreness and pains (including a new pain in my ankle) so I decided not to run the Melon Run on this humid 4th of July morning. This 3-mile race is apparently a Gainesville tradition. The Melon Run is sponsored by the Florida Track Club. While spectating ...

90. Use Cotton Balls to Treat Top of Foot ...
Now that I have been running barefoot and in minimalist shoes for a few weeks, I no longer get soreness or pain in my calves. However, I am discouraged because I developed pain in the top of my right foot. Research ensued. This condition is aptly nicknamed TOFP (Top of ...
