sashabo I have waited for this medal for a very long time and yesterday I have finally fetched it from my local post office. It flooded me with the memories of the day; with earliest of dawns, sleepless night with one-too-many-beers in Beacon; complex feelings; coffee that tasted of nerves; sudden start knee-deep in fresh mud. It reminded me of running Bear Mountain - my first ever trail run, my first ever ultra marathon - with potatoes rolled in salt on the food points, chemically coloured liquids that tasted a little too good to be true, camelback that made my back run with blood as sweat and bare shoulder blades don't go well with fractions and movements of running (don't wear a racerback tee if you wear a backpack); peanut butter and jam sandwiches; dozens of people I know and chatting to them along the course; testing the Google Glasses mid-race (OK GLASS), mountains, mountains, transparent young forest, dried out rivers and deep springs with ice cold water that came as blessing for feet in fire and thick mud, covering legs knee high. The ascends and descends, the rocks to jump from, the step to climb, the distance to go, to views to take in, the sun to soak. The support to give and take. The start and thinking - and the finish strong, running - and not a 100m without a smile because it was the most beautiful meaningful experience that I could have asked for. The weekend didn't stop on the finish line on Saturday 3rd May 2014 - I raced fast forward to the next adventure. And now I'm finally holding my medal for 50k in my hands and I stand proud. It's not because I am fast (I am not). Not because I am strong, trained hard or anything - all lies. But because I chose to be happy in anything I do - and hence I might fail. I will still enjoy the road. #bearmountain #nikerunning #rurc #sharepridesharedream #gorkyparkrunners 7d

Thoughts: Gurdian Weekend, 6th December 2014 by Stuart Heritage

Is it worth it? #BarefootRunning

What is it? The act of running barefoot or in very thin-soled shoes in order to reconnect with nature and strengthen your feet.
How much does it cost? A pair of Nike Free - barefoot running shoes is about €100; if you want to just take your shoes off and run around, it's free.
What does it promise? According to advocates, your achilles tendons and calves will strengthen, you'll develop a more natural gait and a better running technique, and your balance will improve.
What's it actually? I've had a pair of barefoot shoes for about a year and, if I'm running under 10km, I swear by them. They're lighter than normal running shoes. with slatted soles that allow your feet to move more naturaly. At first worried about the lack of support, I've adapted my technique so i no longer need any. However, for this column, I have attempted to run shoeless. This was a mistake. Paths, it turns out, are minefields of mashed glass and dog poo. Plus, thanks to bad planning, had nowhere to put the shoes that I wore to the park and had to run around while wearing them on my hands like some sort of catastrophic berk. I didn't manage a particularly big distance on my barefoot adventure ultimately giving up after a couple kilometres due to a combination of funny looks and shin splints. Barefoot runners promise that it gets easier over time, I think I am best not knowing.
Best bit: running with shoes on. Worst bit running with shoes off.
Is it worth it? Depending on how brave you are, it probably is.
