First 10 Miler

Last Sunday I decided to hit the American Tabacco Trail. Now we had a big rain storm pass through the previous evening and so I decided to wear my huarache sandals. When the ground is damp or wet and you are running barefoot the sharp stones tend to stick to the soles of your feet. So to avoid that discomfort I decided on some minimalist footwear.

The goal of this run was distance, not necessarily speed and concentrating on good form.
10.4 miles later I had got back to the car. My longest run so far in the minimalist style. Now, I have followed this run with two additional runs so far this week for a total of 20 miles this week. I am tempted to try another 10 tomorrow to hit 30 miles for the week. Of course, that depends on my "honey do list".
