Is Running Barefoot Better For You?
There is quite of bit of discussion about running barefoot these days.

Whether we like it or not, running is not a natural act for our bodies. It's a lot like throwing a baseball - we can do it, but it causes a lot of stress on our bodies - whether you're running with shoes or not. Be reasonable in your expectations for your body to avoid getting set back with injury.
