This is a reprint of a post written by Leo Babauta on ZenHabits. Read the full post and honor the original author @ http://zenhabits.net/barefoot-running/. I just keep finding the really great articles missing later.
Leo says “When I first heard about barefoot running, several years ago, I was skeptical — don’t we need cushion to protect us from injuries, and why would I want to run barefoot, anyway?” And he mentions the same articles and the popularity of Christopher McDougall’s book, Born to Run and decided to give barefoot running a try. Why not?
Well, so did I. What I found is that I am still adapting to running with my my Vibram Fivefinger KSOs or completely barefoot and I really appreciated his article and points and so I stored them here. Take a look at what he has to say.
