Gordon Pirie

I've written about Gordon Pirie before (see my post from January 4, 2009), but with the current popularity of "minimalist" and barefoot running, his thoughts seem even more relevant today. Gordon was running and writing this stuff back in the 1950s.  He was way ahead of his time!  Check out Pirie's book "Running Fast and Injury Free" at the Scribd link below (this is the "ultimate" edition of 153 pages--there is also a shorter version). It's free.  Read it, download it, print it, share it. Very insightful. Gordon Pirie also wrote a book called "Running Wild" that can sometimes be found in used book stores (mostly in the UK).
