How did you get into bare feet running? I watched a ted video on youtube called Are we born to run by Christoher McDougall and then searched out information on the internet about Christopher McDougall and realized he was into bare feet running and watch another video by him about how trainers are causing injuries and how bare feet running is so natural and decided to give it a try and really enjoy it. The internet can open up your world. I got into a high plant based diet because of watching videos by Dr Ornish and other American doctors about healthy eating and preventing diseases. The internet helped me find studies from Harvard University about high plant based diet and health, how junk food causes diseases etc. A lot of this information is not in public domain in South Africa. The private media here do not run articles that show their advertisers in a bad light.
