Review of Barefoot Running

Here is a fantastic short video on barefoot running by Dr. Daniel E. Lieberman who is the Professor of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. Note the interesting comments on the various loads placed on the body with traditional heel strike running compared to a forefront landing. Here is a copy of Dr. Lieberman's often-read research paper published back in 2004 in Nature that I had previously read and thought you might find interesting as well.
