Thomas Cunningham-Maffetoning to Boston! By Dr. Mark Cucuzzella
Sharing the story of online friend and fast Masters runner Thomas Cunningham. It’s never too late to learn new things about your inner machinery. Thomas see you in Hopkinton! Your butcher is right….the Ribeye is awesome and you cannot mess it up.

An Unlikely Journey from Cancer to Minimalist Ultra Runner- My Friend Randy Kreill By Dr. Mark Cucuzzella
Sharing the amazing journey back to health from my barefoot and sandal running friend Randy Kreill. I got to share some beautiful trails with Randy in Yellow Springs Ohio on a recent USAF trip. Randy and I have civil discussions on diet. He is all plant and I add some bacon. I wish the rest of the health care world would respect each other too on this topic. Barefoot and Minimal runners at the heart of it are cut from the same cloth. Randy has not had a running injury in 6 years and he runs some crazy distances on gnarly trails. Enjoy Randy’s story.
