I just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. I am a married father of three, EMT/Firefighter, and live in northern Vermont. I used to run many years ago, but I am just now returning after a recent kidney disease diagnosis has motivated me to lose some weight. In my effort to take care of my body, I started researching running and found the multiple benefits to going barefoot! This fits me perfectly as I am always barefoot anyway! Starting slow, but loving it!! Thanks to all of the contributers of this site! Lots of great info!!
