No shoes, no problems for 59-year-old marathon runner
Malibu Surfside News
In 2007, marathon runner Alberto Perusset’s coach had a peculiar idea. He suggested that Perusset should try running barefoot.
Perusset was skeptical. Most marathons are held on city streets. What about rocks, broken glass and hot asphalt? These things, he learned, were minor distractions — not major roadblocks. Ten years and 98 barefoot marathons later, he’s never looked back. To continue reading, please visit: http://www.malibusurfsidenews.com/no-shoes-no-problems-59-year-old-marathon-runner

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.


I ran my first marathon in 1994 in a time of 3:44. Over the last 23 years, I’ve been able to bring that time down significantly. I’ve run three sub-3:00 marathons, including a 2:58 in Boston last year. At 48 years old, I am still looking to improve, and I believe that my best race is ahead of me.

Last fall I made a couple of significant changes to diet and training, and I’m looking forward to seeing the results in Boston in a couple of weeks. To continue reading, please visit: http://naturalrunningcenter.com/2017/03/18/thomas-cunningham-maffetoning-boston/

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.
