5/3/11: Barefoot Running

Christopher McDougall

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Journalist Christopher McDougall points out that there is only one other animal on the planet that wears shoes, and that's just because we "grab them by the legs and hammer them on." McDougall is the author of "Born to Run" and his book is at the center of the barefoot running trend. He's in Salt Lake for a demonstration and book signing, and joins us to explain why so many people are ditching their sneakers and reconnecting with the way he says our bodies were built to run.

  • Tuesday at Christopher McDougall will give a running demonstration starting at Wasatch Hollow Park (northwest of the 1700 East and 1700 South intersection) beginning at 5:30 p.m. Meet at the King's English Bookshop at 5:00 p.m. The run ends at the store, and then at 7:00 p.m., McDougall will give a talk and a book signing. For all the details, click here or call 801-484-9100.
  • Orem running expert Hawk Harper will be part of this evening's running demonstration. Visit the store Runner's Corner in Orem.
