    Odd, isn't it . . . come across someone after or even while they are running/jogging/walking and ask them: "So how goes/went the run," and almost without fail they glance at a watch, reciting a displayed digital time/distance. Odd, isn't it . . . ? When the question is posed to me, I respond Emotionally, as humans are EMOTIONS, we are not digitized facts. So how was my jog . . . its...

    About 5 years ago: I simply took off my shoes and decided to remember how to walk (then jog) barefoot. Unlike many, I’ve still never read “Born To Run” consider the catalyst for modern minimalist/barefoot running. As an avid runner of nearly 40 years I had accumulated the persistent leg/knee issues that so many runners develop as we age. So, like those before me who only heard the gospels...

    * Below is a prose piece I wrote on my website http://www.runitbare.com/ .............................. Stop Bullying Nature When did running become a stupid endeavor? When did runners (or other natural trail users) decide that “natural trails” need to be modified in such a way that they are perfectly cleaned, perfectly marked and perfectly fucking boring! Personally I have nothing...

    Thought I'd share a link to Iowa PBS on a small feature they did about barefoot running. Truthfully I wasn't even sure how they found me, however through emails with the PBS Iowa Outdoors Producer we finally met and I spoke of what barefoot running/jogging/walking means to me. Thought I'd pass it on. Please keep in mind that I'm featured towards the end and I had NO input to the "expert"...

    thus - they spoke . . . (through the voice-box of its human servant) thou are too wear shoes, thou are too lace upon your feet burdens of synthetic leathers and toxic plastics: toxins, molded in far away lands by faceless servants to un-controlled consumerism. thou are too wear shoes, thou are NOT to be bare! how dare you be bare, how dare you free your soul, by baring your soles . . ....

    BAREFOOT encourages you to remember what we are born with, this innateness, a simple beauty, a clean appreciation for what our design evolved as – to what our body/mind is, to what we are capable of doing . . . "we tend to be a society of steps and plans summaries outlines objectives volumes one – nine with an overview and notes at the conclusion" {s.s. – 2014} We tend to think of life...

    I wrote this many years ago... and then last year overlay-ed it onto a photo of mine. I decided to post it here as a POSITIVE feedback to "bare as running" comment in my earlier post: barefoot . . . re-thought. My take is a bit different, yet along the same vein. Run for the beauty of the run as you will never remember clocked-times as you get older, but you WILL remember the beauty, the...

    “Wear Shoes,” is usually the comment mentioned – as, if barefoot was an issue? walking/running/living - barefoot: “how dare they take-off their shoes,” recite [those] who Boardrooms remind them of how their mortgages are paid. “SHOE-them, numb their senses,” [they]: repeat repeat repeat repeatedly regurgitating rhetoric. seeking to deaden the swoosh of air upon which your toes use too...

    appreciate the moment absorb into the skin: views seen, sights smelled [feel] wordless chatter – sentences constructed of random energy take-off your shoes appreciate – melting into your soul what oil-infused soles will never embrace appreciate the moment – unrehearsed untamed untouched appreciate the moment – given freely by natures-energy touch barefoot – natures beauty as...

    Barefoot – has forgotten who “IT” is, [forgotten] how to appreciate the simplicity of why many initially returned to a natural walking/running of feet bare. Barefoot has/is getting lost in the sterilized text of “How To” books or “Training” books and the ever-present “Guide” books. Barefoot is becoming lost in an endless banter of logged-miles and timed-speed. In a weird twist of reality,...

    cheating just a bit - I'll add a entry here that I lifted from my personal blog site "runitbare.com" As a barefoot runner AND a artist/writer living in NE Iowa, running barefoot around here is akin to attaching a sign to my bald head exclaiming . . . FREAK! so hopefully you will enjoy my little story below. the story is true . . . Often it is asked while I’m barefoot, either wandering...
