Ken Bob was invited to be the featured speaker at the Subbs Sports Medicine Symposium in Springfield Illinois.
- 2012 August 3 Friday
- over 100 in attendance (mostly Physical Therapists and other medical persons)
Ken Bob Saxton explains how and why barefoot running has helped thousands (perhaps more), and can help many more people reduce the risk of chronic pain and injuries typically associated with running in modern running shoes, and why running in the new crop of minimalist footwear, or racing flats may not yield the same benefits, and is often associated with their own dangers and injuries.
Saxton further explained and demonstrated how barefoot running (truly barefoot) can actually be less risky, more safe (not perfectly safe — sorry, that’s life!) than many assume.
Saxton also explained why barefoot runners rarely discuss, and also answered, the often asked question; “What about broken glass?”
