It is. The development of shoes with heels changed the way people ran because it allowed for minimal stress on the joints because the heels absorbed most of the shock.

"more natural before the millennia of shoes and "improvements"

At 55, I figure the human body evolved to do stuff by 30 (including procreation) & then die. Since I'm on overtime, I figure I'll be nice to my body. Besides, I run on the same trails we ride horses on...and they aren't real barefoot friendly...even TROOPER isn't looking real happy about being barefoot!

I prefer to run barefoot to shoes. I was a sprinter in track so I was on my toes all the time, and the spikes I used were super light. Regular tennis shoes are just too heavy. So ill either wear spikes and run in grass/dirt/gravel outside or if im on the treadmill, socks.sooooo comfortable.

Ok, so I took the leap. I got a pair of the Merrill bare access 2 running shoes. Going to give it a try. They are normally 90 bucks I got them on sale for 58. We will see how it goes.

Anyone read the book 'Born to Run' by Christopher McDougal?? Pretty sure that's his last name. Anyway.... It is a crazy good book about barefoot running. One of the best books I've read in a long time. Still haven't tried it but that book makes me want to!! ;)
