Hi. My name is Quirl. Iím a barefoot runner. Iíve been clean for 8 monthsÖ Yeah, my name is Quirl but you can call me Jacob, most people do. I should probably clarify though that Iím not an exclusive barefoot runner. Donít get the wrong idea, I donít walk around without shoes at school, I donít go to work in sock feet, I even wear shoes around my own house sometimes. I just want to be up front with yíall, Iím not that guy. I donít picket gas stations that have ďno shirt, no shoes, no serviceĒ posted on the door. I sneak in a little flip flop action on occasion and if Iím really honest with you I would tell you that I have 6 times more shoes in my closet than the average guy. Maybe more than some girls even -cringe- . okay, okay, I donít even wear my Fivefingers to the grocery store at midnight when I run out of milk. (I drink whole milk) I definitely donít wear them to the grocery store at midday. Thatís because my girlfriend has convinced me that they are ugly. She would know. I canít say every outfit I put on is the epitome of contemporary fashion but lets just say my blue vibrams donít really match much. Except my urban camouflage pants, Iím kidding, about owning camo pants not about whether they match or not. I donít even wear them to run all that often because, well, it hurts to run on the road. So for a long tempo run on Saturday instead of velcroing my VFFís I lace up my SHOES (ASICS speedstars).
I still run barefoot. As much as I love shoes, especially running shoes, I would prefer to run without them. I could rattle off more information about brands, models, weights, impact reducing technologies, and stabilizing properties of running shoes than you could probably stomach without losing your lunch. Despite that or maybe because of that when I kick off my shoes and take off running I feel like my feet have been unhinged. Its soÖ clean. Every step I take is like a personal clinic in bio mechanical goodness. I feel faster. Like I might even catch mister Bolt from behind while he is warrior posing towards the sky. I feel lighter. Like I might be flying over the grass with the ease that Dibaba floats on the track. Itís an addicting feeling and yeah, Iím addicted.
