Barefoot Jason does it again (but in style, this time)

Posted by | Posted in Barefoot Running, Running Sandals, Training for Running | Posted on 09-08-2010

Barefoot Jason Robillard has done it again, running 2/3 of a 100 mile race in his Invisible Shoes.

But this time, he’s got some extra fashion sense added:

Now, some of you may know that I’m a sprinter. In fact, I ran “long-distance” at a meet last week when I did my first 200m race (and, for the sake of bragging, even though I totally lost it at the end, my time of 25.7 ain’t bad for a 48 year old… I think I can get below 24 with a bit of work).

So, to read Jason’s great post about training for and running an ultra was just amazing to me.

Long distance running in huaraches

Posted by | Posted in Huaraches, Running Sandals, Tarahumara running | Posted on 10-07-2010

About once a week I get a call or an email from someone who asks, “Can you run in Invisible Shoes for long runs?”

I usually point out to them that the Tarahumara are known for running ultra-marathons in huaraches, so, Yes.

But some people respond, “Sure, but I’m not a Tarahumara Indian.”

True (but not necessarily relevant).

So, how bout a hometown boy who just ran in his Invisible Shoes huaraches… for SIXTY-EIGHT MILES!

Here’s a picture from Barefoot Jason Robillard after his run:
