London Marathon Barefoot

Following my adventures during the Snowdonia Marathon, one of the toughest but most scenic marathons, I have now applied for the London Marathon.

I aim to set a barefoot course record: at least one other runner has done it shoeless. I also hope to get a personal best: my fastest marathon time of 3:50 was achieved in the Lyon Marathon, another flat city marathon (so unlike the mountainous Snowdonia Marathon). And, this time was achieved in my 30's. I will be 40 when I run my next marathon. Yikes.
