Eric Orton commented on Jesse James Retherford's blog post AN EXPLORATION OF BAREFOOT WALKING AND RUNNING GAIT BY JESSE JAMES RETHERFORD
"Hey James - the major difference between walking and running is that running is a jumping movement or event, where as walking is the act of transfering of weight - therefore using the heel."
