Barefoot 5K takes Maryland
Running is hard enough. Running barefoot? Well, people took to the streets for a Barefoot 5K on Sunday. The race was done in partnership with the charity Soles4Souls and local charity Teens Run D.C.
Litmans straps on his Luna Sandals as the 5k was about to begin. Before switching to minimalist running footwear, he suffered numerous injuries and said in the past, "running was frustrating." Now he runs 30 to 50 miles a week and hasn't had an injury in almost four years.
