I was invited to New York by Merrell, and will be joined by a whole bunch of other folks to participate in a Roundtable discussion on the future of barefoot-style footwear. I'll be joined by fellow bloggers, journalists, medical professionals, and others with an interest in the minimalist running movement. I'll also be getting a sneak peak at some of the Merrell Barefoot 2012 shoe lineup, and possibly taking a few advance pairs home to try out :)
On Sunday I'll be heading to the NYC Barefoot Run on Governor's Island - should be another interesting experience. Not sure how many barefoot miles I'll attempt, but my goal is at least one 2-mile loop.
I'm going to try something new here and do a little live blogging. Will try to update this post with anything interesting that happens this weekend!
Update - ran 3+ miles through the streets of NYC to Battery Park. Merrell Road Glove on foot, fantastic shoe! Fixes all complaints I had about running on roads in the Trail Glove. Here's a lousy photo:
