Introducing: another (crazy?) barefoot Grand Canyon hiker/runner

August 23, 2018



Shadowy me on the South Kaibab Trail, Oct. 2017.

I am thrilled and honored that author/adventurer Kenneth Posner discovered my barefoot Grand Canyon antics (as chronicled regularly on this blog), and that my barefoot wandering and writing helped him in some small way with his own first excursion at Grand Canyon earlier this month.

Thanks for the shout-out(s) in your fine blog report, Ken.

(And for those who would like to learn about how (actually, quite non-crazy) Ken got started barefoot hiking/trail running: here’s another one of his excellent blog posts titled “1,000 Miles Barefoot.”)

Happy (Barefoot, 1000-mile, Crazy-Fun) Trails!

    Hi Thea…Ken Posner does a lot in my beloved Catskill mountains. His blog contains some great stuff on Burroughs, Thoreau, and Emerson.
    best regards and stay safe……Bob G.

    We all wanna be like you~ “suburbanite chronically injured running grandma” minus the chronically injured/grandma part

      I need to change the description to “formerly chronically injured”! Woo hoo!

    Thanks for the inspiration, Thea, and showing what can be done!

    When the weather in SoCal cools down, let’s try to meet up and get a group together for a hike! My feet handle any terrain, but from the ankles up, the heat is getting the best of me. 🙂
