As an older runner and fastpacker (57) I share my thoughts on my transition to barefoot running, it's relationship to Kendo and hiking in barefoot shoes. I plug Luna sandals as my choice in barefoot running, biking and hiking (I purchased my sandals and have no relationship with the company). Hopefully these observations and experiences can help anyone who is considering transitioning or trying barefoot technique; however, understand I am no expert and this video is not meant to dispense advice. Advice seekers would do well to scope out qualified trainers. My background includes multiple marathons, ultras and over 25 years of fastpacking (hiking more than 20 miles per day).
