Newbies Barefoot Introduction

This series of podcasts is the chronology of the transition to barefoot running or natural form movement of a Sonya Carr who has taken a challenge from a marathon Madam to a 5K quickie her aim is learning The finer points of barefoot transitioning

Learning natural form running or as it’s called barefoot running can take some time and can be as complex or easy as you make it.

After the disappointment of my running gear failing on me I am going to look around for other minimalist footwear options.

Another quick rant and ramble about Unshoes and the 100% raw philosophy that has the fear factor working overtime that if you look at a cooked food meal it will kill you.

Understanding the need for fresh local based and unprocessed foods should be the basis of a balanced healthy diet, there is a lot of variables on the pathway to health and an individuals personal journey.

Had gear failure today as my running sandals blew out, bit of a shame and inconvenience but hey..shit happens .

The blessing of applied mindfulness is the ability let things be just what they are and move on without engaging.

Like many things its the eye of the beholder that sees the how to describe an event, or pass an opinion on an idea and you will always get better in depth knowledge if you are a participant. So many people want to pass a judgment on things they know little about or have narrow views on.
