Toesalad, IBRD, Public speaking,and Miss Barefoot Bee

IBRD is May 1st and (tentatively on the location)  there will be a gathering and run at Grays Lake here in Des Moines.  It will be a meetup for barefoot and minimal shoe runners and everyone is encouraged to come and go for a run, walk, jaunt, stroll, ect.  Come and kick off your shoes and have some fun at beautiful Grays Lake!  Its always easier to do something new with a bunch of nice laid back people.  If you have wanted to try barefoot running and need some motivation and encouragement, here is your chance!!

There will be updates here as well as the Barefoot Runners Society Iowa Chapter facebook page.

I will be manning the nuun both at the Healthy Living Expo coming up on Jan 29th.  At 12:30 ish I will be doing a talk on barefoot running and my experience with it so far.
Speaking engagement, holy guacamole I am nervous but I think it will be uber fun too!  There will be another Expo called the Natrural Living Expo that will be held in April on the 2nd and 3rd and I will be speaking at that as well if you miss the first one.

Have you checked out Toe Salad yet??  

Toesalad is a directory, forum, and community for all things minimalist footwear. Fellow minimalist runner Damien Tougas of the Adventure in Progress blog has just put up an interesting new site/social network for shoe fanatics. Called Toe Salad (named by his daughter), the site features reviews and information centered around every manner of minimalist running shoe.

     This is Miss Barefoot Bee.
Karly at Bitter Sweetz made me this little sweet bee!

Karly has many other characters like Yoga Donut, Cake Beast, Groovy Hippy Donut, Angel and Devil Cupcake... and many more.  You will see more of Miss Barefoot Bee.  I totally dig her running skirt and sports bra and she has the cutest little stinger and feet! 

Fun things happening this year already.  Definitely opportunities for me to give back and challenge myself and do some things that are scary as hell which can be fun despite the fear!
