Barefoot Running: My Current Thoughts Posted on the dailymile Community Blog

Posted on March 29 2011

Barefoot FootstrikeI’d like to direct you to a post that I wrote on barefoot running that just went live today on the dailymile Community Blog. The post summarizes my current thinking on the barefoot running debate, and is titled: “Barefoot Running: Ditch Your Shoes, Change Your Gait, An Honest Look at a Tired Debate.

In the post I take what I feel is an honest and realistic look at the pros and cons of barefoot running, and address what I feel has been an excessively contentious debate about a style of running that is never going to be practiced full-time by more than a small minority of runners. That being said, I also discuss some of the many benefits of incorporating at least a small amount of pure barefoot running (read: No Shoes!) into your training, and urge everyone to at least give it a try.

In addition to my post, I’d like to point you also to several interesting posts that were published last week during Barefoot Running Week on the dailymile Community Blog.
