Chris McDougall NYT Article

An interesting article (click here) from the writer of the well known barefoot running book ‘Born to Run’ (which I’m yet to read incidentally) on the current state of barefoot/minimal running and drills & programs that can be used to transition from traditional shoes. A video showing the 100-up drill can be found here
Chris references Pete Larson (Evolutionary Biologist at Saint Anselm College, New Hampshire) who writes the highly informative barefoot/minimal running blog, RunBlogger, which is a gold mine of information! Pete posted his comments in response to the myriad of comments left on the NYT article, which presents more of a measured middle ground approach to the traditional vs barefoot debate.
Pete’s thoughts can be read here
