Just sharing a barefoot/minimal shoe running resource with you all

Mamacurl3Mamacurl3 Posts: 1,559Registered Users
Hi Curlies, I've been mia...super busy..it's good to see everyone is keeping up wtih their workouts and working hard at living a healthy active life! I'm currently teaching 7 classes a week between Zumba, Belly Dance Fitness, and Core strength also still running (barefoot) 3 days a week. I've volunteered myself for way too many activities from being in classroom at kids school, to organizing Moms meetups for school Moms, chapter co president of the MN Barefoot Runners Society (BRS) organizing group runs/meetups etc, merchandising coordinator for the BRS store and I'm headed back to school for my Masters in Exercise Science and Health Promotion in Jan. Almost took on the Volunteer in Education Coordinator position at the kids's school but had to draw the line somewhere:p I also just got myself involved with a local Time Bank (you all should totally look into this, it's basically a trade of services/talents/etc...you walk someone's dog for an hour and earn a time dollar and can use that to take an hour of Italian cooking etc..) Just google Time Bank and your state and see what comes up.. I digress.
Anywho, I know I've been on here a few times talking about barefoot running and minimal shoe running, think I remember seeing Vibram posts? Anywho, this site is open to the public and is an excellent resource

www.barefootrunners.org/build2/

If you are interested in connecting with other barefoot and minimal shoe runners in your area, there's a member map at the top. Otherwise, good resource for those who are already barefooters/minimalists or those considering it or wondering what it's about. I'm happy to answer any questions you have about it. I haven't run in shoes for 8 months now, good stuff!
Happy sweating all!!

    Hey, I wondered where you'd gone!

    Thanks for the link I'm still tempted to give barefoot running ago, but I've changed gyms and I don't know the staff so I'm sure I won't get away with trying it there!
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    Good to see you, mc!

    I'm so in awe! :lol:
    I'm getting a Bowflex Treadclimber to vary my workouts..can't wait! :occasion5:
    I've gone from running, to riding my bike, back to walking, now onto the TC...

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq
    Let’s just stay together and tell the world to kiss our ass. ~P

    Missed you too, girl!
    I'm trying..lol
    Running has been hard on the bod, so I'm looking to vary workouts & something low impact.
    The TC is a 3-in-1...treadmill, stair stepper, elliptical :toothy8:
    I so love how you roll! :eye:

    Hi Mamacurl3,
    I only joined this forum recently and the more the merrier!

    Good luck to you.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    lmbo Wile, life became a little easier once I learned to roll with the punches :p That Treadclimber looks bad-a**! good for you, mixing it up is great for your physical fitness. You may find your runs are stronger getting in some good cross training...so, when's your half marathon??

    Hi Pearl! :hello2:

    mc...I got my TC yesterday & used it last nite barefoot! :toothy8:
    At some point, hubby was like, yeah, I was gonna say something to you about the no shoe thing. I was tellin' him about you! :laughing8:
    I love this thing!
    The only thing was I told him to not turn it on b/c I didn't want him to see my weight...what did he do?! :cussing:
    I was like, well, you know I don't weigh what I did when we got married [he doesn't either!], but he will see the decrease when it happens/continues... :laughing9:

    Oh, and promised the fam that 10K would be the most I do! lol

    I def do not look what I weigh. I have more muscle than before, so as a result....pow! :lol:
