Sandal running is more than slow plodding at ultra distances.
I did a decent road marathon to prove a point, and this really annoyed the minimalism nay sayers.
So I finished the 2014 Spartathlon in a pair of ultra thin leather sandals.
This stirred up the ultra running community quite a bit - read the inside story.
What if running long distances wasn't just about "putting in the miles"?
Well guess what - it isn't. And that's why I can keep running long on a very unimpressive training milage.
The more you know, the less you need - I'll be running the 2014 Spartathlon in a pair of simple sandals.
Why would anyone want to do that? Well, to me it's really the only option if I want to finish the race in good form.
