Run barefoot this Wednesday at blinkBL-NK
I recently picked up a pair of Terra Plana vivo barefoot shoes after thinking a lot about the whole “barefoot” shoe thing and how it makes a lot of sense. It was the Vibram Five Finger shoes that got me thinking about it, but they don’t seem to fit my feet very well. So I was pretty excited to see that one of the speakers at blinkBL-NK this week is giving a talk about barefoot running. “Stephan February is a veteran of two marathons (42.2km), and more 21.1km and 10km races then you can shake a stick at. A catastrophic ankle injury 10 years ago kept Stephan out of recreational running until four months ago. Stephan credits barefoot running with his successful return to the open road.” This is relevant to my interests so I’ll be checking it out for sure. There are two other talks scheduled as well “How to Flirt for Fun and Profit” and “Elevating the Debate on Queer Issues in Singapore: What Can Be Done?” so it sounds like it’ll be an interesting evening all around and well worth attending.
