100-Up Challenge

I'm going to be participating in the 100-Up Challenge, stemming from the NY Times article the other day.  I'm really interested to see what, if any, changes that I notice!  The idea of building that muscle memory in makes a lot of sense.  Whether it is a fix for all that ails me... well, that remains to be seen.

My first run was a 2-ish mile run along the West River Road here in Minneapolis.  It was, as usual, slow and sluggish.  I did it barefoot, so my knees didn't hurt much, but still feels like I'm really working at each step.  I'm probably overthinking it.  It was SLOW (and by slow, I mean that 80 year old man with the cane could probably pass me).

In 30 days, I'll be trying the same run again, and we'll see if I notice any appreciable difference.  Through the process, I'll keep y'all posted on my thoughts (because really, my thoughts are fascinating, right?).  I'd love to hear from anyone else that decides to give this a try, especially if you are not currently barefooting!
