At the PawSox 5K in Pawtucket, RI (August 31, 2013)
I ran this 5K barefoot (by which I mean naked feet on the street. No Vibrams or other so-called "barefoot shoes.")
Finished in 23:48--40 out of a field of 300. A 7:40 pace.
Immediately after the race, the posted results showed me first in my category of 13 men...but then it turned out that one unidentified runner, who beat me by 4 seconds, was also in my category. So I took second place.
But I still felt mighty good!
