Running Barefoot


By Attila Ovari

Yesterday I did my morning run a little differently. I ran without shoes. I had heard about barefoot running and wondered what it was all about. It was an interesting experience.

At the start it was a very strange feeling and then in a remarkably short period became quite comfortable, even relaxing. I was enjoying the run. However that relaxing feeling did not last as I developed some blisters….

There is much writing online about the pros and cons of barefoot or, as it called, minimalist running. I am not going to get into that debate as it is not my personal area of expertise, however I will say it was a new experience and it did have me running differently.

This change of routine had me thinking about many of my new life experiences.

At the start we can feel awkward and very uncomfortable. However over time we often become more at ease with the experience and eventually the new way can seem the norm.

I encourage you to explore your curiosity. A new way may be a better way. If it doesn’t prove to be at least you have satisfied your curiosity!

  • What is holding you back from exploring your curiosity?
  • What can you do this week to start your exploration?
