What led you to join this Meetup?

I'm interested in talking to other people who do this to share in some of their experiences.

How much barefoot running experience do you have?

None really, I just started running on the balls of my feet a few months ago. It is a lot easier on my knee than heal strike running.

What led to your interest in barefoot running?

I can do about a mile and a half on a treadmill heal strike running, I can do 4 miles if I run on the balls of my feet. I quickly discovered that shoe padding was getting in the way and there was this 'flipflop' effect of the shoe hitting your foot

If you have some experience running barefoot (or in minimalist footwear), what do you like most about it?

I need to get some minimalist footware to give it a proper try.


I'm currently recovering from my second ACL surgery and I'm hell bent on being able to run and move like a normal person again.
