Harvard Barefoot Running Site
"Running Barefoot or in Minimal Footwear"
has been developed to provide an evidence-based resource for those interested in barefoot or minimal footwear running." I love it. The site was funded by Harvard University and Vibram USA (makers of the FiveFinger shoes). Lieberman has a new article published in the latest issue of Nature. Can you believe a research article on barefoot running made the cover of one of the most prestigious science journals in the world? The tide is turning...this isn't a fad. Dan Lieberman was interviewed for an NPR story on January 27. Here's a link to the story.
NOTE: If you were looking for my weekly Friday morning test run update---it isn't here. I skipped my test run today. I didn't feel well so figured why do a run? I'll get back on schedule next week. Tomorrow is my first ultra run of the year: Riddle Run 28-Miler.
