The Barefoot Running Book is a concise collection of advice to help new and experienced runners make the transition to barefoot or minimal shoe running. More runners are shedding their heavy, overly-cushioned shoes in favor of their bare feet or lightweight minimalist shoes. These shoes allow us to run with better form, reducing injury and allowing for a more enjoyable running experience. Jason uses a combination of research, collaboration, and his own experiences to help you have a safe, enjoyable transition to barefoot or minimalist running. Topics covered include the theory behind barefoot running, a brief review of the research supporting barefoot running, the essential elements of barefoot running form, a collection of useful drills, a plan to make a safe transition to barefoot running, common injury issues and concerns, frequently asked questions, and a list of barefoot running resources.
