Running Advice and News



  1. I love running barefoot. With shoes, I constantly had shin splints and also was having achilles tendon pain. At first I took the barefooting too fast and hurt my metatarsals, but now I am having no pain or injuries or anything.
    For me, barefooting is kind of natural because I have spent so much of my life barefoot. I was a gymnast and a dancer, did karate, and have been a swimmer for 6 years (those were all barefoot). So I guess I have never really adapted my feet to running shoes because they hurt me. In public I normally wear sandals and then to ride my horses I have to wear boots of course.
