Ask this guy.  He's been running barefoot marathons since 1987.  
Or this guy:
http://barefootted.com/  I think he's run some ultramarathons
Most of the issues surrounding barefoot running are social.   There's
not a lot of good science that says you have to wear running shoes to
run.   running shoes have really only been in effect since the 70s or
80s.    This book has done a lot to push the movement forward: 
http://borntorun.org/book.html   It's based on the fact that there are
indians who run ultra marathons through the mountains of Mexico in a
pair of flat leather sandals.

Bird (and horse, and cow, and dog) are good reasons to wear shoes. I
wonder what it would take to run a marathon barefoot?

Me too, Danita.  Shoes are for the birds (or I mean for the people who
have to wear them).....
Does your bird wear shoes?
