My next race is coming up in the next few weeks. It will be the Virginia Wine Country Half-marathon. Back in November, some of my DailyMile friends suggested it, and I decided to come along. The course is downhill overall, and has a mile of gravel in the middle of the course.
I'm just barely able to do 6 miles on asphalt barefoot, but really no good at going on gravel barefoot. My first skin-on-pavement race will have to be later. I don't think this would be a good debut as a barefooter. There are lots of wine-tasting parties after the race, and I think this could be a lot of fun. It's a good thing Stacy is coming along as my designated driver.
