About the Authors
After a near-death accident left me with a titanium femur and hip, I was told I’d never be able to run again and barely be able to walk. Along with chronic plantar fasciitis, 10 knee operations, and no ACL, running seemed out of the question.
Instead I went from overuse injury, to overuse injury, until I got out of my clunky running shoes. Then every day for three months, I began strengthening my feet, while gently jogging further and further from home. I developed a method to heal and
grow strong, without the chance of injury. Soon I was running again, and faster than I ever had before.
Then I met Jessica Lee, who suffered from nagging knee pain before barefoot running. After learning how to run pain free, she said we have to share this plan with the world.
As word got out, runners flocked to us for advice, attracted to the ways we healed and grew strong through barefoot running. These strategies work for us, they work for our coaching clients, and they will work for you. Believe in your body. Nobody believed in mine and now I run healthy, happy and pain free. And you can too.
Learn how to run naturally and experience the joy.
