Shoes Off! Barefoot Running Author To Take A Lap In Springfield


  If you're in downtown Springfield Saturday morning, don't be surprised if you see a pack of runners jogging around town -- barefoot. Christoper McDougall, author of the acclaimed book "Born to Run" is the featured speaker for the Springfield Road Runner's Club annual awards dinner on Saturday night. WUIS's Amanda Vinicky will be there, in her trusty Nikes, but after reading McDougall's book and speaking with him about it, she just may try taking them off ... when it gets warmer.

You don't need to be a member of the running club to attend when McDougall speaks this Saturday evening, at the Hilton. You can register here.

Amanda Vinicky moved to Chicago Tonight on WTTW-TV PBS in 2017.
