Reprint: The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Barefoot Running

This is a reprint of a post written by Leo Babauta on ZenHabits. Read the full post and honor the original author @  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.
