The Bare Minimum

Pardon the pun but there’s a new shoeless running movement afoot.  That’s right, barefoot running may be coming to a track, trail or road near you!

Supporters of the movement believe that the reason so many runners face injuries is caused by running shoes.  The shoes,  not our feet seem to be the problem.  While the logic makes sense,  for now I’m keeping my Brooks firmly laced on!

If you are interested in some more information on this trend, check out today’s article in the San Francisco Chronicle or visit SFGate.com.

Now go run!

    • This guy I ran with once wore those webbed-toe shoes by NIKE. He loved them but did say he felt EVERY everything he stepped on. I am sure there’s a steep comfort curve for barefoot running!
