Long Beach, California
2013 October 13 Sunday
Set up the BarefootRunning.com 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?
