Running Barefoot Workshop
The bottom line is the soles of our feet. If our soles hurt while walking or running barefoot, we are not moving the way we are designed to move!
If we wear earplugs while trying to learn to sing, rather than helping us improve our singing, the earplugs simply allow us to be unaware of when we are singing badly.
Our own bare soles are the two best coaches in the world, IF we are willing to listen. Bare our soles to the ground, and through the immediate, emphatic, and precise feedback, we can learn so much more about How to Run gently, than we ever dreamed possible.
And equally as important, when we are Beginning our barefoot adventure, our bare soles will try to tell us how much is too much, too soon, before we seriously injure ourselves
Barefoot Todd’s Running Barefoot Workshops are NOT about senselessly pounding out the miles. Running Barefoot is about taking advantage of the complex network of nerve endings (senses) in the soles of our feet, so that we can learn to run better, more gently, efficiently, naturally – not by toughening up to endure the pain, rather by responding to pain by changing the way we run so as not to cause the pain in the first place.
Report, if any, will be posted after the event.

Footwear for Barefoot Todd’s Running Barefoot Workshops and Fun Runs
Footwear is optional. However, wearing footwear while learning to walk or run is a bit like wearing earplugs while learning to sing.
If you do bring footwear, be prepared to carry it with you while running/walking barefoot (unless you want them stolen).
