This is a hysterical take on running. Truly a “must read” for you runners…..

This is a hysterical take on running.  Truly a "must read" for you runners.....

I love  “the wall”  description.  I also love the story about running in Japan (towards the end) so keep reading the whole thing,

A fabulous cartoon about benefits and challenges of running. This person did not take my clinic!

Recently I taught Emily Talley of the Naturally Fit sports news channel how to run correctly.

It was a brief lesson but she caught on quickly and seemed to enjoy .

Take a look at this before and after video.  In a clinic you will receive the same coaching and video analysis to help you perfect your stride and take it to the next level.  Can you see the difference??

One of my students, Tara,  over the weekend talked about Phoebe’s running style.  I was not aware of this episode of Friends.

You really should study her form in detail.  I think she might be on to something!!  😉

Get it, read it, live it – Born to Run.

This is a truly wonderful book!  I few years ago I borrowed it from my friend, Tom.  I read it in 3 days!  I could not put this book down.  It has an important message about running, life, and the tarahumara, a hidden tribe from the Mexico copper canyons.

This tribe is really born running and uses running as their way of transport.  No cars!  They don’t have a paradym that running is hard or takes training, power bars, etc…. they just run for the joy of it!

You can purchase the book here.

You must watch this.

Watch Michael as he talks about learning proper technique as being the gateway to improved performance.

He still holds the record for the world record 200 and 400 meter.

Eat Better, Run Better

Here is some good stuff reprinted with the permission of Marvin Jansen   marvin@wellnessforworkers.com

“There’s no easier moment to kick-start your healthy eating plan in order to look and feel your best on the beach or at the pool than when fruits and vegetables hit their peak. Taking advantage of nature’s sweetest, most succulent offerings reprograms your body to work the way it’s supposed to function. Here’s how to make it happen:
1. Count colors instead of calories. Every category of fruit and vegetable contains hundreds of unique, healthy substances. Try to eat at least five different fruits or vegetables each day, in a range of colors. Your shopping cart should have as many colors as a box of crayons.
2. Eat three main meals, plus snacks, so you’re never hungry. When you push your body into starvation mode, it will begin to store fat. Your metabolism will slow down
3. Have a fiber-rich breakfast. Toss fruit into your cereal. Make sure the cereal contains at least 3 grams of fiber per serving. Switch to whole-grain bread. Smear some all-natural fruit or nut spread on your toast.
4. Bring home fire-extinguishing foods. Every refrigerator needs good-for-you foods that put out starvation fires. Blueberries, peaches, cherry tomatoes, celery, and other ready-to-eat produce options simplify the snacking and encourage eating good-for-you foods.
5. Remember that you are in control of your nutrition. You choose the health and tone of your body by your food intake choices. Take care of the living organism in which you reside. Be good to the body and it will be good to you.”

So simple and true!
