I pick my 5 favourite barefoot posts every week. I can’t believe that I am already about out pick number 100. I am in awe of some of the writing out there and reading through so many posts is a pleasure.
Tim has written a number of really good posts recently and I was pointed towards his blog by Tracy from Barefoot Britain. I am fascinated by the positive effect that barefoot running can have on well-being. I have said many times that barefooting has changed my life for the better. Tim’s blog is worth reading.
Modern man is a wimp and Usain Bolt is nothing special says anthropologist Peter McAllister in his book entitled “Manthropology” I love this stuff. Fascinating.
As I find my way in the barefoot world, I find more and more people doing something out of the ordinary. I really like John’s picture. There is something about running tights that emphasises barefootedness. He is on the line for the Seattle marathon having looked at the route the day before from the top of the Space Needle. His account of his race is great. It looks like running in fancy dress is considered more normal than barefooting and he spotted one or two others but not many. I enjoy reading these posts because it is where I am heading. Believe!
The strength of character it has taken to write this post is quite something. We are all on a journey and it never takes the path we think. These things happen for a reason. I write a blog about barefoot running to be injury free and sit typing with a calf strain sometimes. I feel the guilt but honesty always helps. It is one step forward and two back sometimes. Great post!
Ian listened to BarefootRunningUK’s talk at the Running show last weekend with his family. He then walked over to Barefoot Britain’s stand and bought some Xero shoes. He then made and went out for a run and filmed his experience. Top post Ian. He has just set up an Essex Barefoot Group if you fancy a run.
