Summary

Most fun I’ve had at the Los Angleles Marathon since the last time I didn’t run the Los Angeles Marathon (1999). While I was setting up the BarefootRunning.com canopy, the police did stop to ask me some questions … about how his knees hurt when he ran in shoes, and was curious if Barefoot Running might help.

Story

So anyway, I hung out just after mile-23 and cheered on runners, shot barefoot runners (with a camera), and tried to help many of the students Run L.A. run forward… I explained to many of the later runners that it would be easier to go forward, if they would face forward (instead of down at their feet). There weren’t enough barefoot runners to keep me busy the whole time, so I also shot pictures of runners with sandals are Vibram Five-Fingers, when I saw them.
