Anyone else curious about barefoot running? (not now, I mean, it is still winter)
I’ve never met anyone who is a fan, though I know people who have friends who have tried it. And, I’ve been passed by barefoot guys on marathon courses. So I know they’re out there.
What’s the big deal? If you’re curious, you can find out more at The Running Barefoot.
The website likened barefoot running to learning to sing with earplugs in: “If we wear earplugs while trying to learn to sing, rather than helping us improve our singing, the earplugs simply allow us to be unaware of when we are singing badly.”
Last July, the Barefoot Ken Bob held a barefoot running clinic in Omaha. Judging by the pictures of it, there were several interested people there.
What are your thoughts on this barefoot phenomenon?
