Born to Run Barefoot?
- Sorting Through the Myths and Facts of Barefoot Running
- By: Chas Gillespie
- Narrated by: Kaleo Griffith
- Length: 1 hr and 36 mins
Two million years ago, Africa: A skinny, long-limbed creature who walks on two legs, can’t sprint, and has no weapons turns away from his under-nourished friends, and runs down a much stronger antelope. Dinner. Over succeeding generations, this creature evolves into one of the best distance runners on the planet: the human being. Yet in the age of modernity, we find ourselves unable to run without more than half of us suffering injury. This book looks at the injury epidemic in running and what the barefoot running movement believes are the causes of injury.
Short, but to the point.

waste of time and money ....!!
Dont you think that we should live more like these tribes . We survive hundred of thousands of years without shoes and people ran . We couldn't survived as a specie without running barefoot so to say that barefoot running is a mistake is ignorant. Of course we should all start walking barefoot first . Our comfort = unhealthy life style is killing us !!
