After training through the fall and early winter months last year, Sue Kenney conditioned her feet to be able to run in temperatures up to minus 12 Celcius in barefeet. Because she continued to train in the cold, the brain triggered extra blood to be sent to her feet and a layer of "fat" developed as padding on the soles of her feet. Since fat doesn't have blood cells, it has a unique consistency in the cold and works to keep her feet warm. In this video, Sue starts her run wearing minimalist shoes called Zems, and at the end she takes them off to run freely in the forest blanketed in snow. Please, don't do this at home unless you prepare your feet. Read Barefoot Running by Michael Sandler and Jessica Lee or ask Sue about the healing benefits of being barefoot. www.suekenney.ca
