At the Genesis Battlegreen Run in Lexington, MA (November 3, 2013)

This is his first 5K!  As you can see, he's having a terrific time.

I took this photo as I was running.  This runner was just behind me.
(I didn't stop or slow my pace.  After all, I was in a race!)
  
Moments later he passed me and I didn't see him again until after the race.

He came up to me as I was enjoying the terrific post-race food.
"Don't you usually run barefoot?" he asked.

I told him yes, but with temps below 40 and with some snow just an hour earlier,
I decided to run this race in shoes.

He recognized me because he'd seen me run another 5K barefoot,
more than a year ago, and he'd asked me a lot of questions about it.
He said it inspired him to start running himself.

He sure knows how to enjoy a race!
