Well I have come to learn that to avoid injury and to improve my running times I can do so by going barefoot, or close to it.
So now I am starting my training to become a barefoot runner. I plan on entering in local races and eventually getting into Ultra Marathons.
I have a lot of running background running track and cross country in high school. I was a pretty good runner back then.
Now I am a 36 year old 30 lb overweight guy that wants to get back to his glory days of running.
Here is one of my favorite sites, with tons of information about barefoot running, it is Barefoot Ted's blog: http://barefootted.com/
