Barefoot Running and Foot Fitness

It is fantastic to see national headline news picking up stories about foot fitness and the benefits of barefoot exercise!

One of Christopher McDougall’s comments in this video clip is that he was searching for anything that might help him reduce injuries and keep on running.  With a closet full of shoes that  just wasn’t helping him avoid the heel pain, Achilles pain, and arch pain he was challenged with, the medical advice he received was stop running.  Good advice, but not ever what somebody wants to hear if it involves giving up something that we love to do that’s supposed to be good for us.

For Christopher McDougall author of Born to Run, he realized that, “Shoes are the Devil,”  and learning barefoot running techniques has helped keep him on the road and injury-free.

Watch the interview on this CNN video clip.  Barefoot ultrarunner Christopher McDougall explains his inspiration for barefoot running, injury prevention, and the benefits of running without shoes.
