Podcast Interview of an Athlete Healed By Barefoot Running

Listen Here FFWD to ~40mins to hear interview The Barefoot Runner Michael Sandler.  Had a bad accident while training for the Tour de France.  Then had a bad accident while training for a crosscountry rollerblade event.  He then found the only exercise he felt comfortable doing was running.  A series of running-related injuries caused him to reduce cushioning and support until he was barefoot.  

His first day running barefoot was 100yards - rest a few days, then 200yards, etc...  3 months later he is trucking through a 10km at a personal record pace. 

Michael then wrote a good book on barefoot running.
