Fall has arrived!

So this morning when I woke up, it was 59 degrees in my house. I finally caved and turned on the heat as it was starting to remind me of the cold mornings in the winter drinking "Frecco" (Some of you may know what I am talking about) when I lived in Chile. At about 9 o'clock, after it had warmed up a little (so I thought) I went for a little jog. I ran down to the river trail and through some of the joining neighborhoods. At one point I reached a grassy area that was still covered in the shade of the trees and houses. Just like any barefoot runner, I usually love the grass and find it quite comfortable to run in (besides the blades that get stuck between your toes). But this morning the grass was still covered in frost. This was not the most pleasant part of the run to say the least. It got me thinking, what am I going to do this winter to keep running barefoot/minimalist? I either run in my Xeroshoes, or barefoot, so I am in trouble when the snow starts falling (this is Utah, after all). Well this has inspired me to do some research on the matter, so check back soon to see what I've found. In the meantime, here are my feet.
