Got an Idea? Share it with us!

by Abbie on July 26, 2010

As a barefoot running blog, one of our goals is to create content that you, the reader & barefoot runner, want to read and find relevant.  We think that a great way to do that is to search for new ideas and fresh voices.

That’s where you come in.

You may have a great idea in that head of yours that hasn’t been given a voice.  Or maybe you wrote a killer blog post but haven’t posted it yet.  Or maybe you just have an awesome idea to share for our writers to get crackin’ on.  Either way, we want to hear from you!

We are always accepting submissions, so if you have an idea, send it to me at

If it’s an article you’d like to write, send me a couple lines about what it’s about, why we should publish it and I’ll get back to you within a couple days.  If it’s just a topic you’d like to hear about, send that too, and we’ll give you credit for it in the post! Or, perhaps you have some comments or feedback in regard to our articles or the running barefoot book you’ve recently purchased. Write us and tell us all about it!

P.S. We pay! (Decently!)

High Heels Don’t have to Equal Foot Pain

I will admit it, I love beautiful shoes and high heels just happen to fall into that category for me. The fact that I am 5’2″ and anything that will give me any added bonus to my height challenges I tend to like. Plus, I love the sound that they make on a marble floor: click, click, click. But by the end of the day of wearing my ‘beautiful’ shoes, my dogs are barking. Should I know better? Yes. Will it change my habits of wearing high heels? No. But I have educated myself enough to understand how to treat my feet properly if I am going to abuse them on a regular basis. Foot pain is not ‘beautiful’.

Don’t get me wrong; I don’t live in my high heels, like some people do. In fact, I spend more time in bare feet when I am at home than wearing anything on my feet. But, now that I have re-entered the corporate world (ironically working for a company that specializes in developing products to strengthen feet and ankles), you can bet that I will have somethin on my feet that will give me some height. I draw the line at stilettos. I am, after all, a 46-year-old mom of 3, and I do need to act my age. But I like the 2 – 2 1/2 inch range for heels. Are my feet tired at the end of the day? Yes, So, how do I remedy the situation?

** This is the beginning of a blog I am writing about high heels and foot pain. If you like it and would like to see the rest of what I have written, I invite you to contact me at the above e-mail address. You don’t have to be barefoot 100% of the time – I would just like to point out to those runners (I am also a runner, triathlete and CSCS) that there are options. It is not ‘all or nothing’.

Thank you for your time!
