Exploring what it takes to become an ultra endurance athlete

Why I Returned My Newtons

I tried a bit of an experiment by running in some shoes again, for the first time since early 2009. Newton Running shoes promote to help you maintain a proper forefoot/midfoot strike, something I've been doing since beginning my barefoot/minimalist running. However, what I found was that the shoes incorrectly modified my gait too much to be acceptable. I explain further in this episode.
