In my heart, I am very passionate about forefoot running because I didn’t do well as a heel striker as it caused me to get so many injuries. For me, learning forefoot running was life changing and my goal is to share with other runners the things I learned based on my experience with transitioning from heel strike running to forefoot strike running and from wearing thick cushioned running shoes to running barefoot and in minimalist running shoes. And, I would love for you to do the same!
No two runners are the same in that we all have different learning curves, that’s why I like to bring new opportunities of learning forefoot running to others by encouraging you to share your tips. I’d love for you to share your journey at Run Forefoot and how forefoot running has changed your life, so that other aspiring runners can learn, too!

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
