When I watched this documentary Barefoot on Kilimajaro I could competely relate to their mission and I would attempt it myself if the chance was presented in my life.
Often people can’t understand why I would choose to run or walk barefoot through the forest or in the snow and there isn’t always a simple answer. Mostly it’s because I like to be connected to the Great Mother Earth and I’m not afraid to expose my feet to the elements because I trust they are designed to take care of me. Even after reading studies and scientific evidence, in the end what is most important for me is that it makes sense.
For them it was about defying common perception, slowing down and being aware of the environment. And those are the same reasons I like to experience much of my life in my bare feet.
If you haven’t tried being bare foot in a while, take your shoes and socks off now and go outside. If nothing else, it will make you smile.
