Summary

While beach sand, even hard pack at low tide may not be the best place to LEARN how to run barefoot (far too comfortable, even when running with poor technique), it is a great desert for those who are already experienced barefoot runners (on hard and rough terrain).

12-year old Gus Hamborg almost beat me in this race. He was also a high school state champion runner, I think his mom said that he won the one-mile race barefoot at the championship event.
