The wildly popular natural running trend has changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions about method and technique:  Have we been running the wrong way?  And have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe?  Why is a forefoot strike better than a heel strike, and how can we transition between styles safely and effectively?

'I have used these principles to develop running skill in U.S. Army soldiers since 2008 and have seen decreases of up to four minutes on a two-mile run within just two weeks.'  Dr. Charles Blake, U.S. Army major and physical therapist
