Born in ’62, I’m thrilled to have run over forty ultra marathons over the past seven years, including several 100 mile foot races in huaraches and no socks. I’ve been able to adopt the traditional best habits of the Tarahumara with good results and seek to help others learn from this “experiment”. Gandhi is credited with saying, “Live simply, so others can simply live”. The Tarahumara effectively do this via subsistence farming, consuming mostly plant based foods, their cooperative culture and a lifelong habit of running and walking at all ages for great distances in sandals with flat outsoles. As a full time parent in Ohio, I’ve been able to replicate these simple ideas and show how effective they are. Xero Shoes is about living simply. We are, Born To Run.
