You would need some kind of air exchange that wouldn't allow your body heat to escape too rapidly, but that shouldn't be too hard.

My suggestion is that you find a dirt path or grass to run on. Pavement is hard and will wreck your knees, and do so even faster if you're barefoot.
At first the irregularities, pebbles, etc., will bother you, but one's feet become accustomed to that. I can walk over gravel and other surfaces on which other people cannot walk at all.
The hard paved surfaces are eroding your knees, I'm quite sure.

The blood blisters were caused by doing more than the feet were able to handle. I participate in a number of barefoot running sites. Newbies frequently ask how they should get started. Those with a lot of experience say, "Start gradually, and transition slowly". I usually add, "even slower than you can imagine".

They're the same size as radish seeds that I grow often... I'd recommend looking at Year-Round Indoor Salad Gardening: How to Grow Nutrient-Dense, Soil-Sprouted Greens in Less Than 10 days by Peter Burke. He doesn't talk about growing lettuce, but I assume you could use his technique if you have an inexpensive seed source.
