About once a week I get a call or an email from someone who asks, “Can you run in Xero Shoes for long runs?”
I usually point out to them that the Tarahumara are known for running ultra-marathons in huaraches, so, Yes.
But some people respond, “Sure, but I’m not a Tarahumara Indian.”
True (but not necessarily relevant).
So, how bout a hometown boy who just ran in his Xero Shoes huaraches… for SIXTY-EIGHT MILES!
