The entire book is a conversation. These are real conversations I’ve had with real runners, trying to beat their injuries. Here are a few of the most common questions:

Q: You don’t really mean “barefoot” running, do you? Is this about those toe shoes?
A: Barefoot. Without shoes. Ixnay the toe shoes.

Q: What about glass and nails?
A: I hear your concern. Sharp objects turn out to be less of a danger than you think. By removing my shoes, I’ve traded my 24×7 shin splints, plus a host of other ailments, for a splinter every six months or so. It’s been well worth it. For the first time in my life, I can run every day.

Q: What about running on concrete and asphalt?
A: When you step quickly and lightly, the hard ground becomes an asset. “Be a wheel, not a pogo stick.”

Q: What is your #1 top piece of advice to a beginning barefoot runner?
A: Lift your feet. Do not push off.

Q: When will the Kindle edition be available?
A: It is available now on Amazon!
