Hats off to Kelly Mahoney, who ran the Music City Marathon barefoot this year.  Here is an article from the Nashville Tennessean about area barefoot runners.  I have a couple of quotes in there:

I’m just back from a nice 30 minute jog with my dog, Foley.  He gets real hot in the Summer—and it’s hot weather—something like 96 today, and humid.  But he’s a trouper and it felt great to get out and run with him tonight.

I’ve been cooped up in planes, trains and automobiles for the past month—though my travel partner Tommy and I got plenty of cardio work changing trains with all our luggage, guitars, pedalboards and merchandise while on tour in Europe.

But to be back home and take a swim with the kids followed by a barefoot run with the pooch—-heavenly.
