Do we humans run like we used to?  For most of us, that answer is no!  We run based on how the shoe companies have told us to.  Their motivation?  To sell shoes...and we listened!!  LOUDLY!

The link below tells us just how long it takes for feet to change based on our footwear.  (Hint--not long!!)




Chris McDougall, the author of Born to Run, gives us news we've been wating on...from the horse's mouth!  Nike fesses up!





Forget the heel strike, please.  You can run in any shoe, just run correctly.  Running correctly prevents injury and pain.  Go figure!  Doing anything with correct form tends to do just that!  Just ask any cyclist, olympic lifter, swimmer, etc.

Why did it take so long for this to come out?  Well, we are people who like to listen to those in the know...unfortunately, those who we thought were in the know, were in the business of selling shoes.




Matt over here,

has put together a nice piece on barefoot running...take a look.




Take this lesson and learn from all walks of life!
