Post run we talk about running once again.
I didn't personally know anybody then when I decided to check this group out yet I was met with enthusiasm by fellows who extended their arms in handshake... and looked at your feet.
Seemed odd then but when you run with this group, we make our feet our most prized possession. That's why we run in them.
Well, not actually barefoot but the closest thing to being barefoot-- minimalism.
We are the Cebuano Barefoot Runners.
We run in Evos, Vibram Five Fingers, Merrells, other minimalist shoes and even barefoot.
But the majority run in huaraches, Cebuano-crafted by a master himself named Jacob.
All week I run in VFFs yet on Monday nights I make it a point to run tarahumara style, the greatest ultra distance runners on Earth.
Along the way I have made new friends. That is why I will miss running with this group.
