Well, this is a different kind of Run Barefoot Girl podcast altogether!
First, I quote a piece from Taproot Magazine, a lovely excerpt that had me thinking of my grandmother, who was never barefoot but always outside in the garden.
Then I have a conversation with barefoot marathoner Wendy Nail, who ran a recent marathon in China: The Great Wall Marathon. Fascinating report! It’s all about the 90 degree weather, Chinese port-a-potties, running/walking in crowds, what she carries with her on a marathon, and her overall natural high about completing this Bucket List event.
Lastly, I throw up a big personal rant in response to Flint Bourdeau’s recent post entitled “Hey, Fat Girl!” My rant is so epic, and I even leave in all the “ums” which might drive you insane if you even find yourself working your way through it. If you reach the end, know that you are a great candidate to be a therapist – if you can handle this, you can handle listening to anything!
