I got an email this morning from Tumblr, telling me that my blog, ‘barefoot’ was 3 years old today.
That blog is no longer on Tumblr, I moved it to its own website a while back and I’ve been working hard to complete the accompanying content since. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this barefoot running experiment for three years now; it’s been quite a journey.
The website is still officially in beta, although this will change in a month or so once I’ve had chance to promote it a little, get some traffic and hopefully obtain some feedback. There is still so much more I’d like to do to it, but I guess no website is ever finished. It’s finished enough to start showing it off and that’s exactly what I intend to start doing.
The point of the website is to try and inject a little sanity into the subject of barefoot running. People tend to have very polarised views on this; 100 per cent with or against it. Whereas most normal people will probably fall somewhere in-between. There’s nothing out there to cater for the in-betweeners and that’s where I hope this website will fulfil its brief – to cut through the fog of hype and self-interest regarding barefoot running, and also to look further on the subject, expanding into shoes themselves and related science.
So take a look around and please let me know about anything you like, dislike or even disagree with.
