Barefoot running

Making friends with the ground again

Bush track

I’m 47, and my body’s in bad shape. I’m 112kg, my lower back aches constantly, I frequently get ectopics1 (from stress at work, drinking caffeinated drinks, and not enough sleep), I’m tired all the time, I get acid reflux on and off, and my left knee now clicks (among other things).

I need an overhaul.

And the only thing I really want to do is run—barefoot.
