Hi everybody! My name is Riccardo, I'm writing you from Italy. I came to this forum because I was looking for a forum about barefoot running and here I am. My story. I had 3 injuries in the last 18 months, the last one a microfracture of my calcaneal bone due to stress. Then I decided to start going minimal and study barefoot running by myself. I'm starting now my transition to barefoot, and I've decided to run directly without shoes because, in my opinion, minimalist running is very different from barefoot running. I'm approaching my transition very very slow (1 km of running 3 times the first week, now is my second week and I'm running only 1,2 km, next week I will runn 1,4 km and so on). I'm having little problems with blisters. I came on this forum to ask what to do about them and to learn something from expert barefoot runners. This is my story.
