Odds and ends

Another blah barefoot running article over at the New York Dinosaur Times.

Hit gently landed on 300 barefoot miles today. Normally I'd start looking for a new pair of shoes at this point...

What I'm drinking now:
The Rootie Tootie Fruity Smoothy
3-4 strawberries
handful of blueberries
a banana
half a cup of yogurt
milled flax seed (I guess it's healthy; I like the taste)
handfull of walnuts (have you heard? They're the new almond)
honey (because bees are awesome)
half a cup of H2O

I'm getting behind on my art - I've got a commission to finish, as well as my next entry for the moleskine exchange. I need to do some speedwork with my pen.

At what point does a runner without shoes earn the official "Barefoot" title? Am I Barefoot Josh yet, or do I have to wait until after a marathon or something? Also, Josh is a popular name. There is already an existing Barefoot Josh; should I go with Barefoot JoshT (middle name is Titus. Don't judge.)? Barefoot Sutty? Barefoot Josh - the Good Looking One (ha)? These are the questions that keep me up at night.

UPDATE: Found a MUST READ for beginner barefooters: Running Barefoot Should NOT Hurt.


  1. Perhaps if you had a nickname...

  2. Some people call me the space cowboy.

  3. Or were you thinking Rootie Tootie Fruity?

  4. "Barefoot" is not an official title, bro!

    Barefoot Josh - the Good Looking One...that might be a solution hmm

  5. Not official? Does that mean no decoder ring?

    I just realized that younger people might not get that reference.

    OK, now I just realized that was the first time I've referred to a group as "younger people."
