I talk with Mark Lofquist about his transition to barefoot and minimalist footwear. Mark has an incredible story about how barefoot and minimalist shoe running allowed him to run pain free and enjoy the sport of running. We also talk about his experience with the Paleo Diet and Crossfit Endurance.
Quotes: “I realized the I could run more miles in my Vibram FiveFingers than I could in any other shoe/insole combination, ever. The first few runs I picked up some distance and was surprised that I could run the next day without soreness. The thinner the better is what I learned.”
