Connections in the Raw
By: Kevin A. Knight
About the Book
After reading a book about barefoot running, Kevin A Knight began barefoot running as a way to reduce pain in his hip and back. Not only did the pain go away, but he gained wonderful insights while he ran. In Connections in the Raw, Kevin chronicles stories and insights from years of barefoot running. Kevin shares his perspective that deep connections exist in our lives between us and the Creator, other people, and with nature, and that we all have access to wisdom that is rewarded to all who will listen.
Readers interested in running and barefoot running will be enlightened, but even non-running readers will be moved by his reflections on the challenges and delights of feeling his feet on pavement. Knight hopes readers will come away with a new understanding of the wonders of creation and be inspired to listen for what it might tell them. He also hopes it encourages readers to get out and run - with or without shoes on.
