Barefoot Running Step by Step (2011)

Always Remember…

  1. Running Barefoot should be comfortable (on almost any terrain)
  2. Running Barefoot should be easy
  3. Running Barefoot should be FUN!
If any of these are not true for you right now, then play with how you are running until it is more comfortable, easy, and joyful.

Long Beach Marathon




Long Beach, California

2013 October 13 Sunday

Set up the canopy at the Long Beach International Marathon so I could yell at (cheer on) and shoot (with a camera) barefooters, other interesting runners and walkers and friends.

The canopy and I ended up at mile-25 (11.9 for the half marathon) next to Parker, who was monitoring the timing mat at mile 25.

I offerred many runners water, and bananas, while they lasted. One of the shod runners asked if I had any advil? Now why would a barefoot runner want to take pain-killers. If we wanted to run numbly, we would just put shoes on!


  • 13.1 and 26.2 miles
  • At mile 11.9 (half marathon) / mile 25 (full marathon)
  • Ocean Boulevard at Kennebec Avenue, Long Beach CA


Maybe later, or sooner?
