"Doesn't running barefoot make your arches weaker?"
"It always seemed peculiar to me, that people commonly believe every
other part of the body, except the brain and the feet, need exercise
to become stronger."

Howdy Folks I just got back from the 5th annual Polar Bear Swim at Hansen Dam Swim Lake in Los Angeles. The City sponsors two Polar Bear swims, one inMessage 1 of 21 , Jan 1, 2005View SourceHowdy Folks
I just got back from the 5th annual Polar Bear Swim at Hansen Dam Swim Lake in
Los Angeles. The City sponsors two Polar Bear swims, one in Cabrillo Beach
and the other here.
About 20 showed up...15 more than last year, so polar bear swimming is
catching on in LA. Water temperature was in the low 40s or high 30s. Sun
I am now off for a mountain run...slow and steady 18 miles.
Happy New Year everyone!
Next month will be my barefoot running anniversary!
