"A tablespoon of chia is like a smoothie made from salmon, spinach, and human growth hormone. As tiny as those seeds are, they're superpacked with omega-3s, omega-6s, protein, calcium, iron, zinc, fiber, and antioxidants. If you had to pick just one desert-island food, you couldn't do much better than chia, at least if you were interested in building muscle, lowering cholesterol, and reducing your risk of heart disease; after a few months on the chia diet, you could probably swim home." - as described in the New York Times best-selling book "Born to Run", by Christopher McDougall
"Need that extra for the long run, then the Health warrior will get you there. Mix any amount in water or your favorite drink and go the extra mile." -Andy Flory, Seattle store manager
Born to Run is the Web's Best Barefoot/Minimalist Running Shoe Store.
It all started in 2010 when Dan Fairbanks decided to improve his running form and try barefoot running, but he couldn’t find a pair of Vibram FiveFingers anywhere to aid in his transition away from traditional running shoes. He knew what he had to do. With the help of Barefoot Ted, Dan created Born to Run®, and minimalist running shoes are now only a click away.
Born to Run is spreading the joy of natural movement through principle-based education and a truly world-class retail experience. Our goal is to become the best running brand in the world. Shop with us online, visit us in our retail locations, and help us make it happen!
