Great article for Barefoot Adventurers

Linda recently came across this article from the writer of Born To Run, widely considered to be the book on barefoot and natural running. As it turns out the article is pretty good.

Since I’m too busy/lazy to make a video this week, here’s a video of the author making a rather silly demonstration of the drill. Yes, I know it’s not embedded and that’s a pain, but us moochers who don’t host our own website are rather technologically impaired at the moment. More to come on that later…
