Dr. Phil Maffetone is one of the most knowledgeable barefoot advocates around. I've been studying and following his health and fitness material for a couple of years now. This is a stop on his 2013 Music and Wellness Tour. He doesn't come to this area too often, so it's a special opportunity! http://philmaffetone.com/
The Barefoot Runners of the DMV is a group of runners who have decided to forego the modern day running shoe and run in minimalist shoes like Nike Free, Terra Plana, Vibram Five Fingers, ... or ultimately, completely barefoot!
Barefoot running isn't for everyone but those who are able to adapt enjoy far less impact to the joints and a much more efficient run.
More and more people are exploring barefoot running thanks to recent pioneers like Christopher Mcdougall (Born to Run), Barefoot Ted, Barefoot Ken Bob Saxton, and Michael Sandler and Jessica Lee (runbare)
If you're a barefoot/minimalist runner or just curious about this new running craze, join the group and come run with us. We would be happy to have you.
