HMKN 100: Lifetime Fitness & Health

The Idea

We need to translate our idea into a research question. How do we do this?


I'm thinking about taking up running to maintain my fitness.

What's the issue?

I'm reluctant to start running because I've heard so many stories about injuries from running preventing people from continuing to engage in an active lifestyle. However, I've also heard that barefoot running can help prevent some of these common injuries. If I'm going to start running, I'm wondering if I should consider getting into barefoot running.


The Question


Is barefoot running less likely to incur injuries than running in running shoes?
