    Bill Hoffman finished the Lake Placid Half Marathon running barefoot. Hoffman finished the 13.1-mile race 42nd overall in 1 hour, 40 minutes and 55.9 seconds. The Clifton Park resident said he couldn’t run until less than a decade ago, but now that he goes without shoes, he has finished dozens of ultra marathons. To continue reading, please visit...

    Sadly, the access seems restricted from Europe, again... :(

    I got the idea anyway. Thanks for sharing! ;)

    I noticed that they used the words "Punishment of barefoot running", I don't regard it as punishment. I feel like I am being punished when I am squeezed into tight shoes that have laces that are always undoing themselves. Obviously the journalist is not a barefoot runner.

    Agree wholeheartedly with the observation of ‘punishment ‘. I put on my old hikers yesterday for fence building purposes- ouch. By the end of the day my feet were achy, sweaty, completely unhappy. Barefooting is definitely no punishment.
