Surrounded by people that frown more than they smile? Maybe they’re in pain. Maybe that pain is caused by their raised heel restrictive shoes.
Many of my friends have suggested this here in the comments section or on Facebook, most recently my friend Olle. You guys have recommended more people would benefit if society either went barefoot most of the time or at least wore shoes that didn’t choke our feet and alter our posture. This would probably make a bigger difference than our efforts to teach about good running form.
I couldn’t agree more.
To that end, I propose we start the “Spread Happiness Challenge.” I challenge each of my readers to recommend zero drop casual shoes to five friends, relatives, or coworkers by this Monday (March 19th).
There are no real rules to the challenge, make them up as you go along. Feel free to use your own dialogue, and it doesn’t matter if you give a specific shoe recommendation or not. All that matters is you give the recommendation.
Help me share this idea by blogging, emailing, or sharing the “Spread Happiness Challenge” via social media and forums!
