Ethiopian runner Abebe Bikila made history when he earned a gold medal at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome. His speed and agility won him the gold, but it was barefoot running that made him a legend. “Bikila may have been on to something,” said Winter Park resident Carey Rothschild, an instructor of physical therapy at the University of Central Florida who specializes in orthopedic sports injuries. In a paper publishing next month in the Journal of Strength And Conditioning Research, Rothschild reviews the research and provides a guide for those who want to explore barefoot running as a way to train for marathons. It’s a 10-12 week program that slowly eases people who run in shoes onto their bare feet.
