This week is the beginning of a new 6-week running cycle. We’ll be starting back with the basics with very approachable workouts.

A Shameless Plug

As part of running the Philadelphia Marathon, I’m also fundraising (fundracing, ha!) for Back on My Feet.

He runs a lab at Harvard testing all sorts of data points regarding barefoot running, mid-foot striking vs. heel striking, and all other sorts of good stuff that give us legitimate scientific […]
