RBG 98: Michael Sandler’s New Journey

Fans of RunBare’s Michael Sandler were shocked to learn that in May he suffered yet another life-threatening injury and is in recovery in Hawaii. Remarkably, in spite of facing unimaginable physical challenges, Michael remains upbeat and positive, speaking candidly with Caity in this episode about his accident and his journey.

Michael and his wife, Jessica, have contributed immeasurably to the barefoot running movement, including talks, workshops, media attention to the benefits of connecting with the earth and their book and unforgettable film Barefoot Running: How To Run Light and Free By Getting In Touch With The Earth. They also have a new book, Barefoot Walking: Free Your Feet to Minimize Impact and Maximize Efficiency.

They have established a fundraising page on IndieGoGo to raise money for Michael’s injury recovery and to help them both share their message with the world.

This episode of the Run Barefoot Girl podcast is sponsored by Sue Kenney’s Bare Bottom Shoes.

    Todd Ragsdale, of Talent, Oregon , set the world record (pending confirmation by Guinness World Records ) for the longest distance run barefoot on June 5, 2010, as part of the Relay for Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society . He logged 102 miles (164 km), or 413 laps on the South Medford High School track, barefoot.

    Enjoy listening to Michael, as always.

    Just to point out though, Michael, even the expiration date on a loaf of bread is not definite. It’s just a suggestion that the bread should be good before that date… and still, the bread could be bad before that date. We won’t know, unless we sample the bread.

    Internal peace depends on our response to the things that happen.

    Have fun,
    -Barefoot Ken Bob Saxton
