    So, after about a year of barefoot running, reading a lot, and being on this site I feel like I have a very good base knowledge about barefoot running. I've even read a lot of the heavy, scientific articles about it, but that doesn't seem to help when you have about 10 minutes and a couple of questions about barefoot running. So what's the most important things to say with that short time? I...

    Thursday of last week I suffered my first injury while running barefoot. I was running around my college campus, was excited about the beautiful weather, and also felt good knowing that I only had three miles to run, and then an easy 7 on saturday (this was a recovery week for my marathon training). Unfortunately, other people thought the weather was nice and it seemed like everyone was...

    I know this sounds like a weird question, and the more I reread it the more I want to change it, but I'm feeling particularly lazy today and don't want to scroll up.

I had played around with the idea of going barefoot on the track, but had already gotten stopped before about being barefoot and decided against it. I went for a nice and...

    Do we need to have a good beard to be a good barefoot runner? Yes. Am I in any position to be making universal statements like this? No. I started barefoot running in May of last year, in June I was able to participate in a BF KenBob workshop. I was hooked. Not only was his demeanor and information great, but man did that beard look awesome. I wanted one. I'm working on it, but have had to...
