Since I first took off my shoes and started seriously running barefoot, I’ve learned many lessons. In the beginning, I learned all the typical lessons new BFRs learn- elements of better form, the dangers of too much too soon, etc. Next I learned some of my own limitations as far as where and when I could run barefoot. After that, I started exploring the issue of shoes and barefoot running, which I’m still doing today (hence the recent discussions with podiatrists).
Any of us that have ventured down this road will have similar experiences, but we may encounter something unique. I’m curious about your experiences. Share three to five things you’ve learned since starting barefoot running in the comments section. Also include the length of time you’ve been running barefoot. Also feel free to ask each other questions about their experiences. Have fun with it!
My apologies for a lack of posts and replies this week. I’ve been camping in my mother-in-law’s front yard this week and do not have Internet access. It’s significantly hindered my Webbin’. Shelly and I are hitting the road today for our Chicago/Maryland/New York City/Maine barefoot clinic road trip, so I’ll hopefully have a little more opportunity to respond.
