A Note From Erin

A friend of mine on Facebook – with whom I took a Hypnobirthing class a few years ago – posted this recently:

“Listened to the most recent podcast of run barefoot girl yesterday. I was cleaning the kitchen and thought it was about time I checked it out. My husband came home to me scrubbing the floors on hands and knees exclaiming that my world had been rocked by a podcast!

When I was in middle school, the gym teacher send me for further scoliosis testing after the standard check of the spine. We couldn’t afford such luxuries, so it wasn’t until I was practically immobile with a pinched nerve in college that I saw a chiropractor who discovered I don’t have scoliosis, but rather one leg is shorter (“and you’ll have to wear this lift in your shoe for the rest of your life”). I don’t take kindly to having to do something for life other than live. So I’ve been wearing a heal lift for 10 years and seen several chiropractors who all say the same thing. One chiropractor told me I should “NEVER” run, not even on a treadmill, because of my back.

Last summer my mom gave me a pair of used Birkenstocks she found at a thrift store (I wouldn’t have worn new leather shoes) and I wore them nonstop all summer with no lift. I felt GREAT. It inspired me to start running on my elliptical barefoot, which also felt GREAT. I had been running with my lift more intensively and had started to have knee pain for the first time in my life and I didn’t like it. Barefoot on the elliptical took care of that.

As summer ended, and the cold of Alaska set it, I started wearing my shoes with a lift again, and several months ago I slipped while carrying both children into a friend’s house with a marble entry. I’ve had a pain on the top of my foot since that my chiropractor has not been able to help with.
So my point is that listening to the podcast I kept hearing versions of my own story, in a way I never had! I heard an actual PT who says ditch the lift! I heard someone with one shorter leg who runs barefoot anyway, and I believe that this hasn’t caused her to grow a hump or be in constant back pain the way I had been scared into thinking. My intuition has been telling me over and over lately that minimal shoes (I even got a pair of virbrams that I haven’t been able to wear in the subzero temps here, but will be great for Texas) and barefootism is right for me and my body.

Listening yesterday gave me a serge of energy and affirmation that can only be found when you realize that you are not alone in the world :)

So thank you!”

Thank YOU, Erin!!!!
