You Asked I Answered Part II

apples or oranges? At this point, neither, I sort of stopped eating most fruit, but apple if I had to choose

boxers or whitey tighties? Tighty whities, though mine are colorful and some even have stripes!

steak or steak? Don't remember last time I had a steak, haven't really eaten beef in quite a while

:p

Does it bother you if you run with a new person and they start out by apologizing that they are slow? If I had no idea they were slow I would be appreciative, but it really depends on the purpose of the workout. If it's a LSD day, bring them on, if it's a brand new runner (like my kids) all right, but if it's a speedwork or hills day, I'd probably wish they had stayed home. :)

Dibs on tagging Beth! I called it! L├Ęche-cul

Now I need to think up some good questions for Kovas… Waiting

I'll start with: once you are all experienced w/ barefoot running, will you try skirted running? No, but maybe Barefoot AngieB or Andrew will send me a kilt.

Please? I said maybe

OK. If you had a third arm, what part of your body would it be on? And what would you do with it? Oooh, the dirty old lecherous man in me wants to answer in a very crude way, but... I think it would be useful to have an arm attached to the knee - that way I wouldn't have to bend over to pick things up or tie my shoes.

How many thermajocks do you own? One, though the company has indicated that a new model will be forthcoming and I will get to test it out!

How deep is the water? The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the world's oceans, and the lowest elevation of the surface of the Earth's crust. It is located in the western Pacific Ocean, to the east of the Mariana Islands. The trench is about 2,550 kilometres (1,580 mi) long but has a mean width of only 69 kilometres (43 mi). It reaches a maximum-known depth of about 10.91 kilometres (6.78 mi) at the Challenger Deep, a small slot-shaped valley in its floor, at its southern end, although some unrepeated measurements place the deepest portion at 11.03 kilometres (6.85 mi). If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth at 8,848 metres (29,029 ft), was set in the deepest part of the Mariana Trench, there would be 2,076 metres (6,811 ft) of water left above it.

Why is the sky blue? A clear cloudless day-time sky is blue because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light. When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colours because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight.

Seriously - I have been following your BF running - how do you plan on continuing that through the winter? Does that leave you stuck on a TM? Or will you use a minimalist shoe and still run outside? I have run BF on the treadmill and it's not so bad, but honestly, I'm not so sure I'll be barefooting it come winter. I've only run in a few minimalist shoes, so that's something I will have to look into (more product reviews!).

My idea has gone viral, hasn't it? :) Yes, the CDC has some questions for you.

I love Mandy's question of how you plan to keep barefoot running in the winter. That's not a question.

You've reviewed a ton of gear - what's your absolute favorite piece of equipment? This is wholly dependent on the sport, so I'll say that I really enjoy playing with my Garmin, as I use it for both running and cycling, but also love my Mammut climbing pack, as it is the perfect size for quick trips, both business and pleasure.

It turns out that there are enough questions to milk this require a 3rd installment - come back tomorrow to see if I answered YOUR burning question!

  1. Sadly, the same thought occurred to me about the 3rd arm question, but it's kind of funny that ours ended up at the same location though for different reasons.

    Totally with you on the slow perso question...even if I AM the slow person.

    Now I'm off to see if antibiotics will help the burning question...

  6. Good answers. I, too, can't wait to see you run barefoot through the winter. I know you'll do it.

  7. Wait, did you answer my questions. Crap, now I gotta go check. I threw you some fatties right down the pipe.

  8. As I expected, you are ignoring my questions. No one is breaking this up into 3 posts. What? Run out of filler?
