CHANGED TO 9AM TO BEAT THE HEAT ------------ Okay, now we've got Barefoot Wednesdays and VFF Saturdays. You don't have to go barefoot or use VFFs on those days -- just thought I'd give them different names. Let's do Saturday mornings at 10am for our weekly weekend run. Let's try a different location too.
Saturdays at 9 AM Columbus Circle where Columbus Circle meets Central Park West
Barefoot Runners NYC is a group of runners who have left their thick-soled sneakers in the dust and started running with Vibram Five Fingers, other minimal sole shoes, or totally barefoot. Maybe you've read Born to Run, or maybe you've gotten injured running and are looking for a better solution -- whatever your reason, this is the place.
The body's natural stride is a healthier, more natural way to run, resulting in better running efficiency and fewer injuries. We follow a lot of Daniel Lieberman's work, whose research argues that humans are natural runners, and run best with a "toe-heel-toe" stride and a minimal sole.
