Barefoot Running Workshop 2: Lower and Upper Biomechanics
By Emilie Reas, Chapter President, San Diego, California
In the first of our Barefoot Running Workshops, we explored facts and fiction of barefoot running, sensory awareness and mechanics of the foot. In our second workshop today, we introduced basic running kinematics before moving north from the foot to cover mechanics of the lower and upper body. Here’s a recap of the workshop highlights for those who missed it.
Before diving into the nitty-gritty of leg, hip and torso function, it’s essential to understand how one gets from zero to running in the first place. Running has been described in a multitude of ways, from a...
Mt. Hood Scramble: The Grandfather of Filth
A few words from the organizer:
This event isn't designed for the pansy-ass front avenue runner -- DO NOT expect some cutesy lil' downtown 5k, or some wussy boy trail-run. This mother is packed with adventure: hills, creeks, rock, dirt, heavy brush and more. Wear clothes you don't mind ruining, and bring band-aids if you are concerned about some bleeding.

Think you’re up for it? We are ready for you, and to quote Shakespeare’s...

Running on pavement with footwear can be challenging in and of itself, but take away the shoes, and the challenge becomes even bigger.
This summer, one man is daring to run across America’s roads, without shoes, to help raise money for a cause, or two, in the process.
“I’m raising awareness for the Bare Soul Project,” said Jake Brown, who stopped in Liberal last Thursday as part of his run. “It’s a private initiative promoting a global community and conscious lifestyle.”
Brown is also raising money for the Semper Fi Fund, a non-profit organization providing needed resources to wounded veterans and their families.
Brown said while many people take to America’s roads with similar messages, most of the time, the focus is on the runner themselves...
