    FYI, the invite I set up for another session is still "Suggested" so you have to find it on the Meetup home page and RSVP. It won't become an event until there are 2 more RSVPs. I'll just remove the date for now and allow someone to suggest a day/time when there is interest.

    I just set up a place and time for this Saturday morning. I can also be out there the following Saturday morning (11th) if there's more interest. I don't claim to know everything about barefoot running, but do have plenty to share about my journey away from shoes. I have been running in sandals for the past year and completed three half marathons with them at low 7 min pace. The 2 years prior to that I was in VFFs. Let's just make this session a casual run where I and any other experienced minimalist runners can share their knowledge along the way.

    I'm interested in helping out. I started minimalist a couple years ago and now running in sandals. I can share my own transition process on footwear and where/when the pain points came up. I'm partial to Almaden Quicksilver trails as a meeting place to discuss and have a short run. Most Saturday and Sunday mornings work for me.

    Depending on when we schedule, I could do this. Been running barefoot for a couple of years now, including the recent Oakland Half Marathon (3rd in my age group at 1:55:06) and yesterday's Packard Summer Scamper 10K (won my age group in 51:31)
