      Wow!  I need to read that book.  I am just now discovering barefoot running, actually running in generally.  I was born pigeoned toed/inward toes and I had braces on my legs during my early childhood.  Then I had special shoes.  Neither of them did me any good.  I was told I could never run so I took up swimming as a kid and I swam competiviely for some time.  I love it!  I liked it as a kid because my feet and body were free in the water and everybody concentrated on my "beautiful stroke" and not my "ugly walk".  I don’t think I will ever become a runner but I have noticed since I have been taking off my shoes and going barefoot everywhere my feet have straightened out.  My toes have spread out and my feet don’t tend to turn inward.  It wasn’t a 100%  cure but it is definitely a lot better.  Other foot problems are going away too.  I need to read this book.  I am also new to the whole concept of evolutionary studies.  I was raised Christian so I was in environments where I learned that evolution was evil and I never had full contact with it.  So I want to read the human trajectory of barefoot walking/running and then shoes.  Nice post, John.

    I already read (and really enjoyed) Born to Run. I read it at a time when I was already re-evaluating my running footwear due to problems I was having with my knees. The book gave me the nudge I needed to try running in unstructured, uncushioned shoes. It worked out perfectly, so there’s no going back! Thanks – this video was a wonderful whistlestop refresher of the book.

    Anyone know any groups ? LET ME KNOW. ASAP ­čÖé !.’ he wrote.

    Officially a shop owner: The front of Joey’s Essex store is finished, having a logo of the duck near the sign

    And how does a brain dead thicko run a shop? It’s just unbelievable that he’s had money thrown at him to be inside a crappy tv show. The store and his hair products range will make him no money whatsoever. The store i expect is really a ‘loss leader’ for a future internet based business. The entire TOWIE crowd are very wealthy because of inherited Brinks Mat funds. I have proof of this and i have often asked DM to mail me in my story concerning the links towards the essex underworld that from the main characters have: particularly the fairs sisters, joey essex, the Wright family and Arg.
