I thought we should not neglect to pay attention to the under 18 crowd. They are tomorrow's role models. I was also curious how many kids do what their parents do and if they do it by choice? Our daughter is 14, has run 2 5 K's but does not consider herself a runner. She prefers swimming, ice skating and horseback riding. She is running around the house barefoot but wearing mostly flat shoes outside. She has found a pair of minimalist shoes she likes, EVO barefoot red/black and she also is barefoot a lot when she does ballet. Occasionally she'll wear some high heels for a few hours. She decided to cut off the heels of a pair of traditional pair of sneakers and replace them with a thin layer of rubber. They look very nice that way.
