We were both lucky enough to win free entries from the fun and spunky MFDre. Thanks, friend.
What on earth is the Naked Foot 5K?
Does this mean we're going to be running together naked?
The "naked" part of the title refers to the fact that they want to promote natural/minimalist running. "Naked" does NOT refer to the dress code :) ....
|Taking my new Altra's out for a spin a couple weeks ago.|
The Naked Foot 5K in DC consists of a barefoot-friendly 5K plus a two day festival for everything that represents active, healthy, and natural lifestyle in Washington, DC on June 23rd and 24th. Sounds like a blast to me!
The 2 day festival includes:
- Saturday: clinics on natural running, nutrition, and more
- Sunday: 5K followed by demos and booths for alternative fitness and lifestyle practices, holistic medical services, eco-friendly businesses, organic foods, and beverages
Bibs are $40.

And to make the whole thing even more awesome, I am going to hopefully get to run a few add-on miles with Amanda :)
Would you ever run 3 miles barefoot?
I honestly am not able to even go that far in my zero-drop shoes yet. I'm really trying them out slowly because I don't want to get injured. And I'm still not comfy with the idea of running with NO shoes on, knowing my bad luck, I'd probably step on a tack.
...So the plan for Sunday is to run for fun in my cushy comfy shoes, not for time!
