My name is Bill and I am a 57 year old "barefoot" runner. I started running in my 20's when I found out it was something I could do because I wanted to, not because the coach was making me run laps because someone in the class did something wrong. It was a revelation.
I would say I enjoy distance running the most,15 miles or more. I have run lots of marathons and have decided to make the jump to ultras. I would welcome any suggestions as to good resources of information regarding ultras.
I converted to barefoot about 3.5 years ago and found it life changing. The sense of freedom and joy I experience is hard to put into words. I do the majority of my running barefoot but if I need a shoe, for trails etc., I go straight to my Invisible Shoes. The 4mm Connect is my shoe of choice whether running or going out for a night on the town. It's a fantastic shoe!
The transition was, and continues to be, an endless source of fascination for me. To say my feet have changed would be a gross understatement. They are the healthiest, and sexiest, ever.
Strong feet, strong body.
