I've heard that a whole 'nother aspect to complete barefoot running is that your body becomes much more aware of your surroundings. You feel the texture and temperature of the ground you're running on, whether it be warm pavement/wet, cool grass and such. I think that alone would give me a lot of pleasure. When I'm out running now, I try to land on the fore/mid of my foot rather than my heel, but my calves and tendons and everything are not used to it (and get sore), so I can't do it the entire time. I love the way my body moves, though, when I land like this. Laugh if you want, but I feel like a leaping gazelle instead of a stomping dinosaur. Well, that may be a bit of a stretch, but you get the picture. It feels like my feet and body and legs were made to bounce like that, rather then plop-plop-plop down the road, it's more of a boing-boing-boing. Once I am done with my C25k training, I will be looking more seriously into barefoot running and the likes.
