A Video of Barefoot Ultra Runner Sean Sanchez

On August 10th, I volunteered at an ultra race – the fabulous Pacific Coast Trail Runs’ Montana de Oro ultra. It was beautiful, supportive, happy – and the race was very challenging according to the runners I heard from. It was great to help feed the runners! Stefan and I even cooked food for them.

And I noticed a barefoot runner in the 25k race! Here’s the amazing Sean Sanchez and his feet that served him very well on this challenging course!

And here is a photo of Sean’s foot after the 25k (after he cleaned them). He says, “I thought I’d share some pics of what running 15 miles on pokey-rocky trails does to well prepared feet. Since I’ve been barefoot for 3 years, these callouses are solid, and it hardly looks like I punished these soles yesterday. Oh, and the blister under my big toe was from picking up sap on a run a few weeks ago, and all the trails did yesterday was take the dead skin off. Not a scratch, not a cut, just stronger than ever arches and pads in the making.”
