Barefoot running seems to be the new athletic craze. So have you gone and purchased your Vibram Five Fingers yet?
...Or perhaps you are suspicious of the fad. Maybe you aren’t even a runner, let alone one with raw and calloused feet.
Today we’ll explore the painful and exhilarating world of running with author Christopher McDougall. He set off to find a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners and learn their secrets, and in the process found out that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong. McDougall joined us from the studios at Fairfield University, to talk about his new book Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.
