Episode #17 – Dr. Irene Davis

Irene Davis, Ph.D., has been a leading researcher in the running field for more than 20 years and is a promoter of barefoot running and barefoot-like running form. She was a University of Delaware professor for many years, but recently took a new position in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School as director of the Spaulding National Running Center that she is developing.

My interview with Dr. Davis sheds light on many misconceptions about running, so this is the interview to share with your friends who think you’re crazy to run without shoes!

Listen and learn, my friends!

    I totally agree with everything said in Dr. Davis’s interview. As a medical professional in the Midwest, i am in the minority when i speak on these topics. Most others in the medical field here have not immersed themselves in the scientific literature. So it is an uphill battle, but we are definitely making some headway,

    Thanks again for the great interview!

    Thank You, Thank You!!! My husband and I are Certified Postural Alignment therapist and have been telling our athletes and clients about barefoot and minimalist running. Unfortunately we are surround ed by the ‘old school’ PT’s who down play and over prescribe orthotics, etc. It’s been an uphill battle but having this as a resource has been so helpful to support what we’re been saying. Keep up all of your work!! Thank You again!!!
