Well I finished the 4 mile Indian Summer Classic with a time of 40 minutes. My calves never tightened up and felt great throughout the whole race. I think this was because about 3 of the 4 miles was on a trail and I was more relaxed in anticipation of stepping on rocks. I need to work on stepping lighter so I do not get the bruises from the rocks on the trail. Towards the end I started dragging my right foot and need to focus on lifting it up higher.
Overall most of the people at the race were very inquisitive about barefoot running. I got a couple WTF looks from people running in the race but most poeple were very positive.
