Running Barefoot

A month ago, at the suggestion of my friend Dan, I read the book “Born to Run”, a story about the Tarahumara indians, ultra-runners, the bio-mechanics of running, and why we are evolved (‘born’) to run.

After a few trials that were brutal to my underdeveloped calves and feet, I’ve transitioned all my running into 'barefoot’ with my Vibrams. I intend to return to my top ability as a barefoot-runner, and so have set a goal of barefooting a half-marathon this October.

I highly recommend reading the article, and if it inspires or interests you even a little, follow up by reading McDougall’s book.
