Title says it all. Man runs 50K barefoot, his only complaint was that the beer at the end was of insufficient quality.
Yeah I said it. I think the only difference knobby soles make is the design of the skid mark you leave on the trail. If you’re good at running fast on rooty trails, it’s not the shoes. It’s because you’re good at running fast on rooty trails. You probably take small steps when you run.
PS I know nothing about the spikes used in cross country. Zilch. That won’t stop me from declaring they’re probably BS.
PPS In real life, I wouldn’t say BS.
PPPS I think Chiropractors are BS too.
PPPPS Do read the entire series titled Tiny Girly Steps by ac at Running Down. The subtitle is How I learned to run at the mere cost of $100 million and YOU CAN TOO!!!
I ran in shorts this afternoon. Preventative bandaid on The Toe and out the door. Nothing restores confidence like a warm day.
I must say Charlie’s Soap sure got my feet clean, as always. Choosey Barefooters Choose Charlie’s. And did you know that I also use Charlie’s Liquid Laundry detergent to clean my minimalist footwear? Well, I do. In fact, Charlie’s Soap cleans all my clothes.
How was that? Race season is starting soon, and I have to work on my sales pitch. But seriously, Charlie’s Soap is pretty awesome. And it was crazy beautiful out today.
