Good Reads (part 2)   Leave a comment

And for those of you who wants to (God forbid!) try running barefoot, here’s another great resource.

A snippet:

Why do people run barefoot? Here are some common reasons:

* Do not enjoy running, looking for something to make it fun

* Strengthen feet

* Hope to reduce injuries

* Inspired by books such as “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall

* Reminiscent of childhood

* Don’t like the feeling of sweaty, smelly socks and shoes

* Long-time runners looking for a new challenge

* Want to run in a more natural way

* Simplify life

Whatever your reason, remember that running barefoot (or in minimal shoes) is a fundamentally different activity than running in shoes. Make your transition gradual. Read this whole tutorial before you start. And have fun!
