NY TImes article on barefoot running

Beauty of the "correct hypothesis" is that every alternative to the correct hypothesis will always get discredited over time and eventually the correct hypothesis prevails. Now if barefoot running is in fact the correct hypothesis, all we need is some publicity, however skeptical, to have people try it out. If it doesnt work, oh well. But if it does, we have more "converts".

So here is a New York Times article about barefoot running. Its good to see change of sentiment. I hope more people try barefoot running.
And here is the skeptic view :-)

Two more months to go for marathon. I still have not started training yet. Its tempting to test out crossfit theory and run marathon without marathon training. But this year may not be the right year for it. Still keeping this option open for the time being.
