Barefoot runner Ness Madeiros, Kinesiology M.A., featured in CEHD's Connect

barefoot.jpgThe graduate student striding down the halls of Cooke in bare feet has good reason to kick up her heels. Ness Madeiros, an M.A. student in sport sociology, is featured in this semester's issue of Connect. Ms. Madeiros, a marathoner, began running barefoot in her native Bermuda, and has bravely continued to run shoe-less since starting at the U last fall. This year she ran in the Twin Cities Marathon, barefoot, and has been running to raise money for philanthropic causes. Read Ness's story here. Check out her blog, Barefoot for Kids, at
