Barefoot or not, this is interesting

5 miles on the schedule today....done!  I have good news and bad news.  The bad news is I have an ear infection and cannot hear out of one ear.  The good news is that it's not effecting my running at this point.  I'm on antibiotics and hopefully it will clear up in the next couple weeks.


I thought that this was an interesting report that Running Shoes(dot) com sent me.  I've not been a barefoot runner but I have run in minimal shoes and also barefoot shoes up to about 3 miles in distance.  Take a look and tell me what you think.  Here's the link.  I could not get it larger for you:

It sure looks like the trend is continuing.  Even my favorite shoes, Saucony Ride 5's, are going to an 8mm drop.  I may have to get more into it but running 26.2 miles in barefoot shoes - I can't see it anytime soon for me.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Thanks, very interesting. I run in lots of shoes... including 5-fingers, NB Minimus 00 trail, and a bunch of normal shoes.

    Now like I have Hills and speed reps in my program I also run "barefoot"... My coach form school day also said we should run a bit bare foot it make the feet stronger!!! I guess he was right...
