This video reveals the secrets and beauty of a persistence hunt.
The runner is wearing shoes, but he is using a natural, barefoot stride. Even though his heels are padded, he still has a mid-foot strike. Look closely at the slow motion video. Those aren’t high tech ultra lightweight running shoes either. They look like a cheap pair of cross-trainers. It looks like he started out straight bare, then put the shoes on towards the end. That makes sense.
