I have wanted to be a "minimalist" or "barefoot" runner ever since I read Born To Run. It really made sense! We didn't evolve to wear a bunch of motion-control, stability, padded shoes, binding us into this false sense of comfort, right?
I went through the process of adjusting to barefoot/minimalist running - more so on the minimalist front - over a period of a year or two... and I feel I'm finally at the point where I can run whatever distance I need to in minimalist shoes. I do own a pair of hardcore trail running shoes, but honestly, they feel clunky and heavy! I'd much rather wear barely there, light as a feather, glove-like shoes at this point.
