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.

While beach sand, even hard pack at low tide may not be the best place to LEARN how to run barefoot (far too comfortable, even when running with poor technique), it is a great desert for those who are already experienced barefoot runners (on hard and rough terrain).
