Footworks NUMBER 2 Best Barefoot Retailer & Colin McPhail Takes 2nd Place in Barefoot Research Category
Roughly speaking there was a great response from the Scottish Barefooters / minimalist natural running community, helping to get both Footworks and Colin McPhail into second place in the awards. I felt just being nominated was a huge accolade but to achieve 2nd in the retailer category was quite humbling knowing how my business has performed over the previous 5 -10 years. I was also overjoyed at being in 2nd place, to my hero, Prof Dan Lieberman who's book "The Story Of The Human Body" was part of my inspiration.
I owe a lot of my thanks to the loyalty and support of many customers and my staff who helped create the machine. My family have also helped greatly in putting up with my passion for Vibram Fivefingers and Luna Sandals. Watching grandchildren learning to walk then run was a keen eyeopener and most of us never really observe the complexities of these two skills in the developing child. A lot to be learned in our own environments.
I have to congratulate all the winners on their success, look out next year, once you are at the top, only one direction !! LOL...Also a huge well done to every nominee who all deserve a place due to our overall commitment to our natural human cause.
Thanks also to the Host Matt Wallden of Primal Lifestyle for organising a great wee award scheme in an otherwise cold and not so interesting winter month, thankyou Matt. I feel sure you have started something great.
