Original column written by Chris McDougall and published in the New York Times. This is a detailed introduction to barefoot running and his excellent book, ‘Born to Run’. The important thing Chris notes is that many barefoot runners are still landing on their heels – this actually is cause for injury. Chris also discusses the rise of cushioned running shoes and how an entire industry ballooned over the last 40 years. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/06/magazine/running-christopher-mcdougall.html.
