|Barefoot runner Paul Beales|
Paul Beales had been running with shoes for 40 years. Then he decided to try running barefoot.
"I kicked off my shoes and I ran-like kicking off 40 years!"
Beales told the writers at Barefoot Beginner.
Jessie taught us both a lot about ourselves and offered a fresh perspective on what was soon to be rapidly-growing trend. Michael was already a very well-established professional athlete. I was an ex-third-stringer who had run high school track decades before and never knew I had any ability as a runner-until I took my shoes off. She outruns us both.

No matter how much you know, there is more to learn. Barefoot Beginner is an excellent resource for runners looking to start barefooting, and also for experienced barefooters who seek fresh perspectives. It's important to hear what newbies have to say-their fresh perspective helps widen the tunnel vision that experience can create for someone set in certain ways.
