    Barefoot Ken Bob received a request from James Connolly, a reporter with BBC and 5Live; he forwarded this request to me. If you have good writing skills, are articulate, and passionate about running barefoot, please let me know, and I will put you in touch with James.

    Here's the writer's message:

    I’m doing a piece for 5live and bbc online about why people run and
    the rise of running generally.

    Could you put me in touch at someone who could write me 150-200 words
    on why they run barefoot and answer a few other questions (one word
    answer style)

    They’d be part of a bbc online magazine piece on it and would need
    to submit a picture.

    I'm almost literate and sometimes articulate so please put my name in the hat.

    I'm sure bf bob and kenbob have already been thought of as they have the most running cred. I am happy to submit what I can if there isn't anybody else. My thing is maybe on the side of strength/endurance as opposed to pure marathon style running.

    I'm up for the challenge . . . I'm moderately obsessed with taking "barefoot selfies" on my trail running adventures . . . so I got the "photo" part covered :)

    Okay, guys, I think we have enough volunteers, and with Ken Bob's contribution, the reporter should have all he needs. I have pointed him here. You may be getting a private message from him soon. Thanks!
