Distance running is booming in this country. Marathons and half-marathons are selling out and interest in the sport is at an all-time high. Yet runners are still succumbing to foot and leg injuries at an alarming rate. Despite decades of technological innovation, running shoes are failing in their job of protecting runners. Now there is a better way! By embracing simplicity runners have found that relief from pain and chronic injury comes from actually casting aside overbuilt running shoes and orthotic inserts in favour of more minimalist designs that allow the foot freedom to work as nature intended. Runners in barefoot-style shoes feel reborn by running more naturally, much like early man did for millions of years. Picking up where the national bestseller, "Born to Run", left off, the coauthors offer compelling evidence why this new minimalist approach to running is here to stay, and is not merely some passing fad. Based on interviews conducted with top running lab researchers, shoe experts, elite runners, and coaches, "Tread Lightly" is sure to be a groundbreaking book for all runners.
