I have decided to start a blog about my transition from injured former runner to barefoot walker/runner/hiker who feels better than ever.  I started running and walking barefoot 10 weeks ago after hearing Christopher McDougall interviewed on NPR.  I was intrigued.  I was on a long drive, so I pulled over for gas and found a bookstore and bought McDougall’s book, “Born To Run”.  I read it as soon as I got home.  

Then I started walking barefoot.  It went so well that I started running barefoot.  I can’t wait to do more hiking barefoot.

If you’re interested, there are links to the right on this page.  I highly recommend McDougall’s book if you are a runner, or if you just like good books.

I also recommend spending at least part of your day with your shoes and socks off.
