As I flipped through some news shows and so-called news programs I saw photos of President Barack Obama running barefoot in the sand while on vacation. The first thing I thought about was how all of us run barefoot. A lot of people may look down on barefoot running but they at sometime have done it and will do it again, and the interesting thing is that running barefoot is often associated with joy, think of running in the sand, playing barefoot in the grass all good memories.
The next question that came to mind was " What is President Barack Obamas Running form?"
Unlike other Presidents it is hard to find Photos of Barack Obama running. I found a couple photos and put them together to attempt to analyze.
When looking at the first 3 photos I tend to believe that Obama is a heel striker but the cool part is when looking at the last photo where Obama is running barefoot on the beach his form improves and it looks as if he'll mid-foot strike. When running barefoot your body naturally adapts to protect itself.
Anyways, Hope you have a great day.
