Barefoot Running Step by Step (2011)

Always Remember…

  1. Running Barefoot should be comfortable (on almost any terrain)
  2. Running Barefoot should be easy
  3. Running Barefoot should be FUN!
If any of these are not true for you right now, then play with how you are running until it is more comfortable, easy, and joyful.

Summary

MEET an 81-year-old runner who has raced barefoot for 66 years. Charley (Doc) Robbins, a retired physician from Middletown, started running when almost nobody else did.

Robbins said he started running in 1936 because ”My future father-in-law took a dim view of me. So I’d meet my girlfriend” — and wife-to-be, Doris Stevenson — ”at her grandfather’s farm, about four miles from my home in Bolton. I ran home at midnight over dirt roads, and barefoot. Then I thought if I could run the four miles without stopping, I might as well join the cross country team.”
