I heard the same interview during a long car trip from Chesepeake Bay to Nashville. I pulled over in Roanoke, found a bookstore and bought “Born To Run”. I dove in as soon as I got home and devoured the book in a few nights. Since then, I’ve been running and walking barefoot daily (about 16 weeks I think). My 20 year battle with achilles tendonitis, which had me hobbling around, not running, eating 12 to 16 ibuprofen a day…the battle for now is over. My achilles tendon, knees, hips, and back feel great.
I have been running for 37 years, and getting a new lease on running is such a wonderful thing!
