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.
