Barefoot running--or is he FLYING? Midsummer run in Lexington, MA.

Barefoot running in Lexington, MA (August 6, 2014)

We all know the feeling.

We're lighter than air!
FLOATING above the earth.

Sometimes it's true!


You're wondering about the black
tape on the runner's calf.

It's duct tape.
Plain old duct tape.

The runner is recovering from a calf strain.
Wrapping the calf in duct tape allows him to run...
and fly!


You're wondering about the shoes?
(or lack of shoes!)

I'm a barefoot runner.

Not always...but often.
And especially when I want to run
with minimal impact.

Barefoot running is a very gentle form of running.
Very easy on the knee.
(I have a bad knee.)

I'm not suggesting that you run without shoes.
But it sure works for me!
