  • I’ve heard this is one of the most beautiful races.

    I can’t imagine barefoot running on that surface – it looks painful.

  • The Big Sur International Marathon is indeed one of the most beautiful marathons, Mary.

    Yes, for me, that surface was a bit “invigorating”. The beauty of the course overall makes it less painful, though!

    Seriously, with proper technique and training nearly any surface can be run upon sans shoes without undue discomfort. Fortunately for me, this type of roadway was only present for a couple miles and I was able to negotiate it relatively handily. The funny thing is that this was the newest section of roadway! Perhaps after another year of vehicular traffic, it will be more mellow.

    But you can do it too!! Perhaps I will see you out there at the BSIM in a future year – unshod or not!!

    Congratulations on completing the Rockin’ the Coto Trail Half marathon yesterday, Mary. I do not know if you are aware, but I was one of the finishers in the previous day’s Charlie Alewine Racing marathon on Saturday. Without shoes, of course!!

    Charlie’s events are always well-stocked and staffed making them great races for a first-timer or those ultramarathoners of whom you spoke. The medals and other amenities rival even the biggest races! It is a good crowd of people with which to share time! And, in my case, LOTS of time!!

    Well, congratulations again and I will be looking forward to reading about more of your escapades in the future!

  • I’m happy to hear you were able to negotiate that surface relatively well – and I’m sure the scenery was a nice distraction.

    I do believe I’ve now added Big Sur to my list of ‘must do’s’.

    Thank you for the congratulations. I had the best time yesterday. I didn’t realize you had done Charlie’s race the day before, too. I loved the energy and the vibe – I will definitely be doing more of his races in the future.

    It will be awhile – if ever – before I am adventurous enough to try running barefoot. I’m still healing from a bad case of posterior tibial tendonitis so I’m currently running in motion control shoes with orthotics. I am the furthest thing from a barefoot runner at this point. Heh.

    I must admit that you were the first barefoot runner I ever saw in action – back in 2008 when I was training for the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon with Team In Training!
