So I had been targeting the Martian Marathon for a half marathon but the day before we came back from Colorado and I was still on Mountain Time when my alarm went off at 6 A.M.
I didn't make it to the race.
I did run 12.5 miles the next day, so I'll call that my half marathon.
Not included is the 2 mile warm-up I did with Bo.
Then on Monday I took off my shoes and ran my first true barefoot miles. I had been stripping off my shoes for the last month to finish the final quarter to half a mile in socks but I had never gone skin to the ground.
Two miles as nature intended.
I did it again on Wednesday. Feet hurt, calves stiff. It's like starting to run all over again. We'll see how this goes.
