Is Running Bad For Your Knees?

Spend enough time in the average weight room and you might walk away thinking that running is the root of all exercise evil: It does a lousy job at burning fat. It's less exciting than C-SPAN and, haven't you heard, it messes up your knees. But if you've been avoiding the treadmill based on the word of the guy who seems to live under the squat rack, you might want a second opinion.

Running is far from immune to scrutiny, as this very site has proven multiple times over, but the negative long-term impact it has on the joints is often wildly overstated, if not flat-out wrong. As Janet Hamilton, an exercise physiologist and run coach with Running Strong in Atlanta puts it, "Joints are…

Your one-stop source for everything running related! Get the Run-Down!

I started running ultramarathons on April 3, 1993, when I ran the American River 50. I started this web site sometime before May 15, 1995 (that's the earliest record I have), when I was working for Silicon Graphics and selling/supporting web products. Since I retired (OK, I was laid off) on October 13, 1997 I've been operating this web site as a free service to the ultrarunning community (especially the RDs), since I love the sport and the people who are part of it.

This site was launched in early 2009 as a place for me to share my thoughts on a wide variety of topics. However, I became hopelessly hooked on running and slowly found my writing focusing more and more on topics related to the sport. As a biologist, I developed an interest in running science, and a bit of an obsession with running shoes and running form. I began accumulating running shoes and writing reviews of them, and the site started to take off.

Barefoot Runners Society

The Barefoot Runners Society was born out of a need to find others who have the same interest in running barefoot/natural. As you know, it's comforting when you find others who share the same passion for running barefoot or minimal that you do. It is what binds us to one another and helps us to feel that we are not alone in this otherwise solitary experience. Our vision is that there will be BRS chapters throughout the world which will offer support and resources to the barefoot and minimalist running community.

When Ken Bob began racing exclusively barefoot in 1997, he found that people had a lot of questions. Actually not that many questions, mostly the same questions over and over from many different people. So Ken Bob thought it would be simpler to compile information about running barefoot in one place, like a website, where he could direct people who were persistent in asking question after question.
