Minimalist shoes going maximum coverage

I surprised to find out that 25% of all running shoes being sold in the US are minimalist ie low heal with minimum protection. This trend has been building over the last 5 years. The first I heard about this was when I heard that a leading show manufacturer vistied a distancing running powerhouse university in the state. They noticed the top runners were not wearing the top of the range shoes. When they queried it with the coach he said tha he noticed that his top guys got less injured when they wore lower value lower protection/cushioned shoes.

Motivation

A recent study of motivation revealed that one of the main difference between elite and club athletes was relatively lower levels of amotivation among elite athletes ie a greater sense of unwavering purpose.Both groups are motivated in a similar way by Extrinsic motivations eg Money status, social approval and Intrinsic drivers like fun and passion.
