After the group run on Sunday, Ludo and I were approached by a young woman interested in learning more about barefoot running so we talked for a while and referred her to the group's site.

I thought I'd start a list of links that I've found helfpul, and others can add their own in the responses. Hopefully, the sites will be useful to current members and anyone checking out our group to learn more about barefoot running in general.

I have no affiliation with any of these sites/sources. This list is by no means exhaustive, just some of the sources I've found useful.

"Born to Run" Christopher MacDougall -- the book that has generated a lot of the new interest in barefoot running. I loved this book and would recomend it to anyone interested in barefoot running. The book doesn't deal with learning to run barefoot.

MacDougall's site is: http://www.chrismcdou...­

Barefoot Ken Bob and Michael Sandler are two experienced barefoot runners that had recent clinics in Central Park. I found both clinics to be very helpful.

Barefoot Ken Bob's site has a lot about running barefoot form - I found his "beginning" and "Faq" sections very helpful.

Michael Sandler's site is:­
I loved Michael's clinic but haven't had a chance to read his book yet. Based on the quality of his clinic I'd expect the book to be good as well.

runner's world has a barefoot running forum:
http://www.runnerswor...­ -- is a site mostly about Vibram Five Fingers. Personally, I'm focusing on running barefoot right now - but the forums of this site seem like they'd be a good spot for anyone who has a question specific to VFF's - such as how the sizes compare between models, etc.

Great idea Mul!

I would add two videos by Josh Sutcliffe (who has been posting on Ken Bob's site for a long time) showing how to actually run barefoot:

And also, "How to run" by Barefoot Ken Bob:­
