I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I'm just returning from a two-week business trip to Asia and enjoyed some great barefoot running over there. Actually, I'm now sitting here in Minneapolis on a flight delay...as per usual, the very last flight of the trip has the issue. I'm ready to fly back to Indy and everyone is all here...except the pilot! So, it's a good time to sit here and write this blog.

The first day arriving in Singapore, it was a short night but I still got up early and did a short 4 miler before heading to the airport. It was a little rainy but I was able to find the Riverwalk area which would become the staple for my long runs on the following week.
Once up in Penang I was able to get in a nice 4 mile beach run as our hotel was right on the beach in this beautiful resort community. The run was shortened somewhat by an incoming storm which was blowing in from the north...I didn't want to become a lightning fatality the day before we started working! Also, I had stepped on something at about mile two, something sharp, like a sea urchin which drew blood in the arch of my right foot. It was fine by the time I got back to the hotel and I was happy to have the short run completed as I watched what seemed like a hurricane threaten to blow the patio furniture through my sliding glass door!

After not knowing how many miles I would be able to get in over there I was pleasantly surprised that the two week total was a little over 88 miles. While this didn't keep the higher weekly totals from earlier in the month going, it did still give me a respectable 253 for the month which is my highest monthly total of the year.
Keep on Barefooting!
