I just wanted to throw out a thanks to you, Owen, for the clinic. After that I read Ken Bob's book and a couple others. I am routinely doing 4-5 mile runs bare foot now and even did an 8.5 mile mud run.

By the way.... Most of the runs are on sidewalk or crushed limestone of the prairie path.

That is awesome, Matt! If you can already tolerate the texture of crushed stone, that is huge progress. Sounds like you have arrived as a BFR!

I had a pretty big head start for foot conditioning. 2 1/2 years doing pretty hard aerobic work barefoot with just a little running. Now I am including running more and more.

Thanks again.
