Excellent blog. Just thinking of making the shift to barefoot when I read this: blog on barefoot running and low carb / low salt diet, as practiced by a Scotsman in 1709! Some interesting things on trying to get him to wear shoes once found, but the comments on diet and his great condition obviously appealed to the captain of the ship. Enjoy : )
A snippet: “When his powder failed he took them by speed of foot; for his way of living, and continued exercise of walking and running, cleared him of all gross humours, so that he run with wonderful swiftness through the woods, and up the rocks and hills, as we perceived when we employed him to catch goats for us. We had a bull dog, which we sent with several of our nimblest runners to help him catch goats; but he distanced and tired both the dog and men, catched the goats and brought ‘em to us on his back.”
