Hi, I'm new to the forum and barefoot. I've been moving in a more minimalist direction for a year or so now. Up to running twice a week in Vivo barefoot 5-10 miles. I've just got some xero shoes and when the weather improves will be moving toward barefoot. I just need to get over this Achilles tendonopthy... I'm in the middle of marathon training but tend to be more of an ultra distance runner! Glad to be on the forum. Hello again!!
