When Merrell started on our Barefoot journey, Emily started with us. Em started running after the birth of her first daughter, mainly because the baby was happy in a stroller. Running has since turned into an outlet for Emily. Below she shares how important it is to listen to your body, even if your mind won’t slow down.
Despite the fact that I’ve been able to increase my miles and have accomplished some races in barefoot shoes, I still consider myself a Newbie. I have a lot to learn! A lot to learn in form, in listening to my body, in setting goals that continue to inspire me to go further and have fun.
