Barefoot Jungle Marathon – one for the future!

Here’s a rather interesting find, that I came across last night…
I had spotted the picture below on Facebook a while back and only now, did I realize that this was in fact the UVU Jungle Marathon!!!! O_O Vibram_Jungle_02

I was left reading and viewing video clips, last night, admiring the fact that someone had attempted and completed a jungle marathon barefoot, wearing Vibram Five Fingers. This is quite an inspiration for us, back home, that are simply taking our barefoot adventures along the trail and hills.

I also stumbled across ultra adventure runner, Duncan Macrae’s “Jungle training” blog. What is a rather interesting read, I also found reassurance in his point, where he said “rest days are just as important as training days”.
