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.

Tony Mook ran into me on the hike and bike trail, and good things have come from it!

He received instruction from me in POSE and he published an article about POSE in the Seton newsletter www.goodhealth.com

Great writing from Tony!   http://www.goodhealth.com/articles/2010/03/19/i_forgot_how_to_run_pose_method

Statesman Article – Freetorun!

I just finished 2 very successful mini clinics.  One at the Runtex location downtown and the other at Crossfit in Georgetown.  Here is a great article in the Austin American Statesman about POSE and me.

Hopefully, this article  will  help get more people running correctly and without injury!

Running correctly saves your body and shoes

Barefoot running is really making a splash around the country.  Someone said there was an NPR radio show about it so I just checked and sure enough.  Listen to it here!

The cool thing about learning POSE is that you learn the correct way to run barefoot without going out and hurting yourself!  I only run barefoot on the beach.  However, I do wear a very minimal shoe, the H Street by Puma.  I have owned the same pair for 3 years, put thousands of miles on them, and they still look and ride great! Why?  Because I am very easy on the ground and on my feet and legs.  The shoe has any easy time of it.  No need to replace the shoes every 500 miles like most runners do.
